Learn about Plant Intelligence!

Image: Paco Calvo

Want to Hear About Plant Intelligence? Bored of dull talks? Tired of getting lost and spacing out, just waiting for the cue to clap? Let's try something more dynamic. My preference is intimate conversation, small groups of 5 to 20 people, where members of the "audience" can participate and join the conversation. Are you in Europe? Maybe you've got a nice garden, good for a stroll and a chat? If you think you might want to fly me over for a face-to-face about plants, feel free to drop me a line. I'll send you an estimate with no obligation. I would be excited to tell you all about the goings on of MINTlab and the exciting world of plant intelligence.
