Description

The folklore of wild plants

Booking essential

Plant folklore is an immense topic, reflecting the central importance of wild plants in people’s lives, at least until recently.

We’ll look at broad aspects of plant folklore.

Join us to learn about the plants in the Cemetery Park and to discuss the folklore associated with them.

The area of 'folklore' is broad, but can cover anything from: traditional beliefs concerning plants, local names of plants, herbal remedies, plants and plant materials used in traditional customs and religious festivals, sayings, riddles, tales and legends concerning plants, plants used in children's games and pastimes.....and many many others.

Join Roy Vickery, botanist, to learn a little more about the plants in the Cemetery Park and to discuss the folklore associated with them.

Event leader: Roy Vickery worked as a botanist at the Natural History Museum, London. He remains a Scientific Associate at the Museum, where he participates in events in its Wildlife Garden and helps curate its lichen collections. After 10 years as chairman of the Trustees of the South London Botanical Institute in September 2014 he was elected president of the Institute.
