Event Date: 
Friday, 22 April 2022

This event brings together artists, scientists, researchers and lovers of genus Quercus, and of course the Mighty Oak itself. They will explore oak biodiversity, their evolutionary story, and their ecological place. Participants will hear about their spiritual significance and mythical aspects. They will learn about the revival of foods from acorns in Portugal, considered staple food for many indigenous people around the world. They will connect to the essence of Mighty Oak through a contemplative druidic journey. And they will hear from artists sharing their stories of encounters with grand oak trees.
