|Where:||Braamfontein Campus East
Dr Chrissie Sievers, senior lecturer in Archaeobotany at Wits will present this lecture.
From poison to pleasure, the use of plants has permeated our lives since our earliest origins. In southern Africa there is a particularly rich heritage of indigenous knowledge about plant uses and the Origins Gardens form a living museum of plants which cover a wide range of these uses. This talk will celebrate the plants in the gardens, especially those represented in the 2018 Calendar designed by students of the Greenside Design Centre.
