Why this blog?
In a nutshell: it exists in order to help you cultivate meaningful awareness about the connections between nature & culture. Most specifically, plants. The ultimate question:
What can our relationships with plants reveal about who we are?
If you like what you’ve read so far… it’s likely because you enjoy stories about people & plants. If so, look no further: I’ve a book about the cultural adventures of olibanum (frankincense, Boswellia spp): Of Perfumes & Gods: Tales of Olibanum; and a free list of plant-o-philic resources…
OH. And I also have the pleasure of collaborating on The Planthunter, a wonderful website on the connections between plants&people.
And if you happen to speak Spanish, I’d encourage you to visit the Spanish index.
Because, yes, this was a project that was born in Spanish, with a book published in 2015 called La Invención del Reino Vegetal, and there’s a blog with quite a few Spanish articles in the language of Cervantes.
