During a recent Biomimicry workshop, we talked extensively about the various ways plants disperse their seeds. We talked about hitch-hickers, takeaways, juicy fruits, winged seeds, parachutes, floaters, spinners, exploders, pepperpots, and all the other ingenious ways plants use animals and the elements to push their seeds far and wide!
As part of the workshop, people brought in all kinds of seeds they have gathered. Some are easy to identify, others not so much. For example, the big one in the center of the picture below is a Baobob tree.
Do you know what these seeds grow?

As a philosopher, naturepreneur, artist, and biomimic, I have spoken in front of intimate groups and conference audiences around the world about climate change, the Music of the Plants, plant intelligence, biomimicry, bioutilization, and how the plant world can help us find solutions to problems big and small.
