Lecture Series at Kew Gardens

Event Date: 
Monday, 26 September 2016 to Monday, 20 March 2017

The Kew Mutual Improvement Society was established in 1871 under the auspices of Joseph Dalton Hooker. The Society programmed a season of horticultural lectures for the benefit of student gardeners at Kew.

Lecture seasons have occurred annually since the inception of the KMIS. Initially, events were only open to Kew students and staff, but more recently have become open to the public.

On December 5, IOS Editor and former President Béatrice Chassé will deliver as part of this series her lecture ‘Acorns as food in human history: Myth or Reality?’ originally presented during the 2015 IOS Conference at The Morton Arboretum.
