Plant Kingdom

Conversations, stories and reflections from the field

Plant Kingdom is a conversation series about plants, nature and environment featuring scientists, artists, researchers, writers and healers.

We release two conversations each month, and hear from people who have an intimacy with plants and nature. We discuss their work, stories and reflections from the field.

We record in Sydney, Australia on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation and pay respect to their elders - past, present and future.

Hosted and produced by Catherine Polcz.
