Podcast: Plants and our Health
Plants & Our Health is a podcast mini-series exploring how plants and nature are critical for human health and wellbeing.
From agriculture and medicine to fashion and mental wellbeing, plants underpin many essential aspects of our society, in fascinating and sometimes unexpected ways that are underappreciated. Plants & Our Health aims to celebrate the wonders of plant life and explore its contributions to human health and wellbeing. The series invites a diverse array of guests from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and beyond to share their experiences and expertise working on projects which research or use plants to support our health. Have you ever heard of doctors in Scotland prescribing nature? Do you know what a plant passport is? Plants & Our Health is the way to find out.
Plants & Our Health is a collaboration between RBGE and Not Another Science Podcast, and is funded with support from the British Ecological Society. Tune in every week from Friday 12 February to hear our host Aaron de Veres dive into exciting new stories from the world of plants. Episodes can be found under ‘Not Another Science Podcast’ on Spotify, the Apple Podcasts app, Google Podcasts, and elsewhere. Be sure to hit ‘subscribe’ so you don’t miss an episode.
