Timothy Walker – ‘From Diaz to Diamonds’
Timothy Walker was, until 2014, the Director of the University of Oxford Botanic Garden. He is a Fellow of the Linnaean Society of London and has been a research lecturer in the Department of Plant Sciences at Oxford since 1992. He has spoken to the Herts Group on several occasions and is always entertaining. This talk takes a route from the southernmost tip of Africa to the border with Namibia, looking at one of the most botanically diverse areas of the world: the Western Cape.
Our Christmas Party follows Timothy’s talk. Festive drinks will be provided by the Committee.
• Please bring a plate of nibbles to share, savoury or sweet, on a disposable paper plate to avoid washing up. (If you need to bring your food in a tin/plastic container, please unpack on arrival and return all containers to your car.)
• No cutlery is available so finger-food only that does not require heating.
• Please label any plates of gluten-free or dairy-free food.
• Floral table arrangements will be very welcome.
