To celebrate the launch of my new ebook, Jade Pearls and Alien Eyeballs, in this episode I’m talking about plants that have been launched into space, and some of the research that is being done to make a manned mission to Mars possible. There’s even a mention of a garden on the moon, and a reading from a futuristic section of the book (which is about unusual edible plants and the people who grow them). We have taken plants to every continent on Earth, and now into space – or have they simply used us to expand their reach?
Hello, my name is Emma.
I'm an ethnobotanist. I love edible and useful plants, and my garden is my sanctuary. I'm building a beautiful, bountiful paradise in my back yard.
I write books on my gardening adventures - scroll down for more details. You can find me on Twitter and Facebook, but if you'd like to know more, you can email me.
