Botanical exploration, trade, and advances in agriculture during the Enlightenment fundamentally altered diets and lifestyles in Europe, America, and beyond. Botanist Matthew Opel of the University of Connecticut Plant Biodiversity Conservatory displays a selection of living plants that provide us with food, beverage, and medicine, and discusses the origins of these useful plants and their journeys across the globe. Free with admission to Fine Art & Flowers.
