Ada is an ecologist and has researched behavioural ecology and conservation - and a keen vegetable gardener. She is a lecturer in Biological Sciences at Brasenose College and a tutor in the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford.
Every gardener wants to be proud of his or her plants, be it flowers or vegetables for the kitchen table. We will explore the scientific basis for successful plant cultivation, and explore the science that shapes the future of food security.
Port Meadow is a great landmark of Oxford and a fascinating ecosystem. We will explore what processes shape meadow ecosystems generally, and Port Meadow specifically. During frequent field trips we will explore aspects of natural and local history.
