Plants and Engineering with Dr Neil Paterson and Professor Glyn Bengough

The Friends of the Botanic Garden are sponsoring two fantastic talks this August which will be run by The University of Dundee Botanic Garden and The School of Science and Engineering.

The event is on the 7 September starting at 2pm in the Education Centre at the garden.

Neil will talk about how weird water is and how it flows more than 100 meters up tall trees.  Glyn’s talk is about carbon-friendly engineering of soil with plants - from protecting people to understanding how our gardens grow.  giving two brilliant talks about subjects you probably wouldn't think would normally collaborate. The first one is about how trees survive and the process in how they take in water from the soil, this is a fascinating process to learn about. The second talk will give ideas and initiate discussion around saving our soils using bioengineering procedures.

Afterwards there will be time for you to have a chat and a drink… Or two of fizz.

This event is free and open to the public can we please ask that you register your attendance via Eventbrite.

We hope to see you green fingered scientists there.
