Orlando de Lange, SoundBio Lab and Ada's present Herbarium Fantasticum: Imagined plants and what they can teach us about ourselves

From the Vegetable lamb of Tartary to the Triffids, and from Spaghetti trees to Glowing trees, plants fill up our fiction, myths and media. Come find out about some of these wondrous creatures and what they can reveal to us about our relationship to the natural world. 

Our Speaker:

Orlando de Lange, Plant Molecular Biologist at UW and parent to many happy houseplants.

Arriving in Seattle from the UK, by way of Germany, presenter Orlando de Lange now spends his days researching plant immune systems at the University of Washington. By night, weekend, and any other free time he can be found at SoundBio, a community lab space in the University District where he leads a team of intrepid amateur plant scientists (www.sound.bio).
