Adventures and Life of the “Plant Messiah”

Adventures and Life of the “Plant Messiah”

with Carlos Magdalena
Saturday, November 21, 2020

Carlos Magdalena is the Scientific and Botanical Research Horticulturist at Royal Botanic Gardens, at Kew, as well as the author of the critically acclaimed The Plant Messiah, a nickname he got for his ability to bring plants back from the brink of extinction through innovative propagation methods. He will recount his work at the glasshouses, the role of those collections, the plants he works with, and the places he’s visited for several projects. Through all this Carlos has one aim: I want people to know how much we need plants. I want people to be enthusiastic about saving plants from extinction.”
