June 1-3, 2018 Seeds of Seeing Margaretville, NY Plant Cognition scientist comes to the Catskills, New York
Plant Pioneers and the Blue Deer Center are thrilled to announce the sponsorship of Paco Calvo, Professor of Philosophy of Science from the University of Murcia, Spain this June 1st – 3rd.
Prof. Calvo’s recent research takes special emphasis in the philosophy of plant neurobiology, ecological psychology and embodied cognitive sciences and he comes to the U.S. to bridge his plant cognition research with friends and colleagues from all walks of life as well as students, traditional and non-traditional educators in the fields of Herbalism, Plant Spirit Medicine, Wild Crafters, the Natural, Life and Physical sciences, sustainability and philosophy studies.
"Through learning to observe plant behavior to the naked eye, we not only become better connoisseurs of plant life, we're also better intro-spectors on the lessons for our own cognition" - Professor Calvo
