Otley Science Festival: James Wong

Otley Science Festival: James Wong

Details

Have you read that the nutrient content of many of our most common foods is in steep decline? It’s a common claim, but does it stack up scientifically? What is the evidence? How do we measure it? James Wong pieces together the best evidence we have so far and busts a few myths along the way.

James Wong is a Kew-trained botanist, science writer and broadcaster. He is the author of the internationally best-selling books 'Grow Your Own Drugs' and 'Homegrown Revolution'. His presenting work spans a range of BBC programmes, including the award- winning 'Grow Your Own Drugs' & 'Great British Garden Revival', as well as Radio 4's 'Gardeners' Question Time'. James is passionate about communicating plant science to new audiences in relevant and accessible ways. In 2015 The Sunday Times listed him as one of the Top 20 most influential people in horticulture.
