Talk by Dr John Dwyer, author and Burnley graduate.

Weeds, plants and people.
Why do some people spend so much effort trying to eradicate plants in certain circumstances, while other people nurture those very same species for food, medicine, or simple enjoyment of their beauty? Could there be a better way for us to live alongside the many wild plants we encounter in our gardens, farms and landscapes, than to wage war on them?
A lively and engaging talk on the history of common plants.
