Hello, I'm Maeve Bassett


Education and interpretation specialist with a focus on exploring people's relationships with plants and the natural world for museum and public garden engagement.

I generally summarize my work and approach as applied ethnobotany because 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.
