The patabotanists have to excuse themselves for not being present at the Citadelpark. They’ve sent their research assistants to represent them and serve dishes to test human responses to particular plants and experiences. The research assistants work in pairs, where one person serves and the other one functions as a ‘sitter’ (, preparing the person for the experience and asking about the experience afterwards. At the end of the picnic,
