Professor David Mabberley is again returning to Adelaide Botanic Garden this October to deliver his fifth intimate lecture series - don't miss out on this opportunity to learn from one of the world's great botanical minds!

Our daily lives are full of close encounters with the plant kingdom - including food, textiles, medicines, drugs, dyes, pesticides and spices. In Mabberley's two-day Masterclass you'll learn about the fascinating world of what is, in fact, the human side of plant-animal interactions.

This course is not only for botanists and ethnobotanists, but for all those interested in the biological basis of human society. The course will teach a far deeper understanding of plants; how they have shaped our past and how they can impact our future.

Economic Botany Today includes lunches, morning and afternoon teas, Garden and Museum tours and a botanical cocktail party at the Masterclass' conclusion.

Head to Eventbrite to book your spot to learn from a botanical master in a small and intimate group setting!
