JANE GOODALL
Seeds of Hope  (Presentation & book-signing)
Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants
with co-author Gail Hudson
Hosted by Claire Hope Cummings  

"steeped in science, Goodall's feelings for the plants are spiritualand her   concern for their fate in the modern world is forthrightly political."  Michael Pollan, author

The world's foremost authority on chimpanzees shows us the secret world of plants with all their mysteries and potential for healing our bodies as well as Planet Earth.

In Seeds of Hope renowned scientist Jane Goodall shares her love and profound knowledge of the botanical world, offering us a greater under-standing of the critical role that trees and plants play in our lives, With the same observational skills and engaging voice that deepened our personal feelings for the world of primates, she opens our eyes and hearts to our connection with the astonishing world of plants and trees  as food, as medicine for our bodies and psyches, as helpers in the urgent task of healing the harm we have inflicted on the natural world. Even when she is tackling the sinister forces imperiling the very nature of the plants we depend upon, her stories are visionary, uniquely enlightened, rooted in hope.

Her lifelong passion for botany sprouted in the backyard of her childhood home in England, where she climbed her beech tree and made elderberry wine with her grandmother before establishing her home away from home among the fig and plum trees and chimpanzees in the Gombe forest in Africa. In Seeds of Hope, she introduces us to botanists around the world, places where hope for plants can be found, such as The Millennium Seed Bank, where a billion seeds are stored.  

Dr. Jane Goodall is the world's foremost authority on chimpanzees. A globally renowned conservationist, she is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, and has received many of the most distinguished awards in science. In addition, she is the author of many books, including Hope For Animals and Their World, Reason for Hope, In the Shadow of Man, and The Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of Behavior.   Jane Goodall Institute.org
