There’s no doubt wind farms are great, but the fact is that they don’t create new plants or flowers.

To make them more efficient, plant scientists are looking at how wind farms harvest the energy they generate, rather than the biomass they burn.

That’s the topic of this episode of Plants and Flowers, a new podcast by the Smithsonian Institute that brings together top wind farm experts and plant scientists to explore how wind turbines harvest energy from the wind, and how the wind itself can be used for a wide range of useful uses.

Learn how wind can be a tool for the environment, for humans, and for the planet.

Listen in to find out how you can find the perfect wind turbine.
