Ethnobotany: Humans & Their Use of Plants
Virtual Lecture 


People use plants for food of course, but also medicine, shelter, clothing, decoration, fuel, packaging – the list seems endless. We’ll talk about how the move from hunter-gatherer to agriculture and then industrial agriculture fundamentally changed everything about our lives and the world around us. We’ll look ahead and discuss how the choices we make as consumers influence the future of agriculture and the environment. Instructed by Gretel Anspach 

Gretel Anspach is a Lifetime Master Gardener with the Massachusetts Master Gardener Association, a Trustee of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and a recently-retired systems engineer for Raytheon. Gretel helped to establish and maintain two food production gardens that have provided fresh produce to the Marlboro Food Pantry for the last eight years.
