The story of fruit cultivation is a story of our desires, our lasting imprint on the natural world. Join us and writer Bernd Brunner for this natural history talk.

The first orchards may have been oases dotted with date trees, where desert nomads stopped to rest. In the Amazon, Indigenous tribes maintained mosaic gardens centuries before colonisation. Modern fruit cultivation developed over thousands of years in the East and the West. As populations expanded, fruit trees sprang from the lush gardens of the wealthy and monasteries to fields and roadsides, changing landscapes as they fed the hungry. The story of fruit cultivation is a human story. It is also a story of how humans have shaped and bent nature according to our desires for millennia. In his presentation Bernd Brunner will give an overview from the early beginnings to the challenges fruit cultivation faces today.
