Friday November 18, 2-3:00pm

Join us each month as we highlight San Diego Botanic Garden’s commitment to and support of current plant-based research.

Over human history, we’ve changed the plants we eat – domesticating food plants to suit our purposes. Today’s food systems are facing enormous challenges, including food insecurity, environmental change, and natural resource depletion, leaving producers and consumers asking “What is the future of our food?”. Join Colin Khoury, Sr. Director of Science and Conservation at SDBG, to hear how an important part of the answer to this question may not be found on farms, but rather in wild places. He’ll discuss how by understanding, conserving, and making more use of the wild relatives of our crops, we can develop healthier and more sustainable agricultural systems.

San Diego Botanic Garden operates according to current County and State guidelines. In accordance with guidance from the County of San Diego and the California Department of Public Health, SDBG encourages visitors to wear masks indoors. 

Cost: Free with Garden admission.

Class format: In person, indoors

Please register by November 17, walk-ins welcome, space-permitting.
