Welcome to Botany!
Why take botany? Quite simply, you cannot live without plants. Plants do SOOO much for us and get little appreciation.
We often don't think about plants, but daily we rely on them. It's not that they give us oxygen (though we appreciate that!). Plants give us food and materials for making clothes, make-up, shampoo, medicine and building.
We are going to explore as many applications of botany as we can.
