We are back! They are back! She is back!

Almost ten episodes ago, back in April 2019, we talked about a wonderful woman Ellen Hutchins, the first Irish female botanist, and guess what, we are talking about her again in this new episode.

There are two great reasons to get back to her, except for the obvious fact she was amazing.

First, the annual Ellen Hutchins Festival happened, and Jack got a chance to talk to Madeline Hutchins, a great great grand niece of Ellen Hutchins. Madeline is joined by our first comeback guest Frances Gallagher, and together they paint an exciting picture of Ellen’s life and work on seaweeds and algae.

The second reason happens to be an exhibition at The Royal Botanical Garden Kew called Celebrating Ellen Hutchins. It puts a long-deserved spotlight on her work as a field botanist, seaweed collector and illustrator. The exhibition is open till November 22.

This episode is the first part of Jack’s conversation with Madeline and Frances, so stick around for part #2 and we’ll see you next time!
