What Did a Plant Ever Do for You?

This course provides an introduction to the science and art of botany and horticulture taught in the context of the extensive indoor and outdoor plant collections of Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG). An understanding of the value of plants in natural and human history will complement an inquiry-based approach to learning how plants are built, how they work, and how they interact with the living and nonliving components of the diverse environments they inhabit.
