The Healing Power of Plants – Timothy Walker (University of Oxford)
Thursday 12th March at 7:00 for refreshments and start at 7:30pm, at Ridgeway Community Centre, Old Buildings off Wood Street OX10 0EW.
We welcome Timothy back; he will be speaking on The Healing Power of Plants.
Mankind has exploited the medicinal properties of plants for thousands of years, yet the role of plants in modern medicine is still considered to be peripheral by many people. This talk attempts to put the record straight and to show that plant products are used every day by all of us to relieve pain and suffering, to heal wounds and cure diseases.
Timothy has held positions at Oxford Botanical Gardens, Saville Gardens, and Kew Garden and is a lecturer in Biological Sciences at the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford. He has won four gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Timothy Walker was the Horti Praefectus of the Oxford Botanical Garden and Harcourt Arboretum from 1988-2014
Visitors welcome £3.00
