Diana Beresford-Kroeger: The Call of the Trees

May 9, 2020-- Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a world-recognized botanist, medical biochemist and author (and now filmmaker). She is known for her extraordinary ability to translate scientific complexities of nature for the general public with both precision and poetry. "If you speak for the trees, you speak for all of nature", says Beresford-Kroeger, one of the world's leading expert on trees.

From a very young age, she understood she was the last voice to bring Celtic knowledge to the New World.
