The Orchid Hunter: an Evening with Leif Bersweden
Thursday 26th October 18:30 - 20:00 at London - Islington
The Orchid Hunter chronicles Leif's efforts to find every species of wild orchid native to Britain and Ireland within one growing season - an undertaking that had never before been accomplished. An intriguing combination of botany, travel writing and memoir, Bersweden takes the reader through a study of 52 orchid species - one that will open your eyes to the rare hidden delights to be found on the doorstep. Leif’s enthusiasm for his quest is infectious, as is the quiet conviction with which he keeps at it, showing how plant hunting can be the ultimate mindful activity.
Wine will be served.
"A compelling tale that will awaken the plant hunter in all of us" - Catherine FitzGerald
