Herbarium. Living legacies.
The manuscript herbarium
Two groups to choose from:
Group 1: 20, 21, 27 April.
Group 2: 8, 9, 15 June
The timetable for both groups is from 16:30 to 18:30.
In this new stage of Herbarium, we will participate in the construction of a collective herbarium that will allow us to preserve a seasonal record of the species of our environment.
We will learn the techniques of collection, pressing and labelling of the specimens collected, but we will also investigate nomenclature, taxonomy and the problems involved in classifying organisms and assigning them a name.
As usual, we will be chatting with the neighbours, which will allow us to weave knowledge and enrich our experiences with local names, uses or memories.
The most important part of this stage will be the legacy that we will build by working together; a botanical collection, a herbarium, in which all the pieces that make it up will be created by the union of nature and our own hands.
