Hello, I'm Maeve Bassett 


Applied Ethnobotanist [alternatively known as economic botany or plant humanities] exploring people's relationships with plants and their relationship with us.

I love learning about the history of plants and a region and utilizing that information to connect contemporary problems and discussions in a relatable way. I aim to figure out what aspects of plants and the natural world excite my audience the most, whether it's art, food, math, or cold war assassination methods.

I have extensive experience with interpretation, exhibition curation, education, public speaking, and writing in Public/Botanical Gardens, Museums, and non-profits.  

Please reach out if I can help facilitate engagement and education between people and plants at your garden, organization, or publication. I am happy to work within most budgets or timeframes.
