Lessons from Plants


Wednesday, February 23, 2022, 6:00pm to 7:00pm


Harvard Museum of Natural History—Online

Plants are essential to humans and the environment: they provide food, absorb carbon dioxide, produce oxygen, serve multiple ecosystem functions, and beautify landscapes. In Lessons from Plants (Harvard University Press, 2021) Beronda Montgomery invites us to appreciate our interdependence with plants and the many lessons that can be gained from a better understanding of the ways in which plants grow, adapt, and thrive.

In this conversation with Brenda Tindal, she will address what plants can teach us about relating to one another, building diverse communities and being resilient.
