Rescheduled! Lunchbox Talk: Plants We Eat and Wear
October 31, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Rescheduled from September 12!
Alan Weakley, Director, UNC-Chapel Hill Herbarium
Thursday, October 31; 12-1 p.m.
Explore some of our most fundamental relationships with plants: the foods we eat and the clothes we wear. Our diet and clothing reflect a fascinating history of the domestication and international sharing of plants across cultures over the past 15,000 years. What are the implications of our increasingly global and industrialized diet, and the “locavore” agitation against it? The lecture will be followed by a sampling of plant foods from around the world.
