May 3rd 2022
Join tutor Dr Alison Foster for a one day online course on plant chemistry (along with bits of horticulture and botany) of a range of our 'Five-a-day' vegetables.
This interactive course will be delivered by Cambridge University Botanic Garden (Adult Learning) online only and will explore:
- The impact our consumption of plants and plant products has on the plant itself at the different stages through its lifecycle
- Plant defence systems (and hence consumption by humans)
Dr Foster studied chemistry at both degree and PhD level, and after retraining as a horticulturist, joined the University of Oxford Botanic Garden, eventually becoming Acting Director.
