Do food plants belong to science or the humanities? Or to us all? This one-day workshop will explore different kinds of thinking and knowledge – scientific and artistic, theoretical and practical, academic and everyday – about edible plants. Our big question will be: how can these different kinds of knowledge illuminate each other? Participants from a wide range of fields will share their own perspectives, and insights will emerge from both presentations and discussion to inform all of our thinking for the future.

We hope that this will be the first of a series of meetings, involving both the same participants and others, allowing a continuing dialogue between people interested in food plants in many different disciplines, and continuing our exploration of the relationship(s) between them.

This talk is part of the Vegetable Love: Edible plants between nature and culture series.
