350HorticultureN/AN/APlants and Human WellbeingPlants provide not only the foundation of food, clothing, and shelter essential for human existence, but also some of the key raw materials for transcendence and abstraction through music, art, and spirituality. Since antiquity, we have co-evolved with plants and their derivative products, with each exerting a domesticating force on the other. It is, for example, impossible to think of our modern life without its plant-based accompaniments in the form of cotton, sugar, bread, coffee, and wood. Yet they are so ubiquitous we may forget they all derive from plants discovered, domesticated, bred, and farmed for millennia in a never-ending pursuit to improve our wellbeing. This course will explore major points of intersection between plants and human wellbeing from a horticultural point of view. Each week, we will highlight a plant or group of plants that represent a primary commodity or resource through which humans have pursued their own aims. We will examine this plant with hands-on demonstrations and produce extracts and preparations to more deeply explore its effects and impacts in human society.
