Botany is the science of all things plants! The plant kingdom is a vast and beautiful group of organisms, responsible for so many essential functions here on planet Earth. Although they don’t speak up much, amazing plants are everywhere, feeding us, providing our air, cleaning our water – just waiting to be discovered and appreciated.
