Inspiring ethnobotany

William Milliken is the author of Flora Celtica, a book about Scotland’s plants, their history and their uses. He was instrumental in introducing Mara's founders Fiona and Xa to the ethnobotany of seaweed.

William spent last summer mapping the previously unchartered border between Brazil and French Guyana, being airdropped in with the French Foreign Legion. Click below to hear the fascinating and inspiring story of his trip.
