A day dedicated to bringing plants into focus

 

 

Cambridge University Botanic Garden is holding its annual Festival of Plants, Saturday 14 May 2016 offering something for everyone to enjoy: from families to photographers, gardeners to budding plant scientists or anyone looking for an interesting day out in beautiful surroundings.


Set in the Garden’s 40 acres, the Festival of Plants celebrates all things plant as it hosts a range of activities, tours and events including:

  • hands-on plant science activities and plant-themed pop-up museum family fun;
  • displays of carnivorous plants and orchids;
  • free tours of the Garden and bite-size plant science talks.

Horticultural experts will be on hand to answer plant queries and offer advice including tips on vegetable growing and composting and there will be specialist plant stalls, pop-up food stalls and musical entertainment on the Garden’s Main Lawn.


The aim of the Botanic Garden’s Festival of Plants is to provide visitors with an opportunity to find out more about the plants the Garden grows and the science they support as well as exciting plant and conservation projects happening in Cambridge. The day also offers a chance to interact with scientists from across the University working on plant-based solutions to global problems.


Professor Beverley Glover, Director of the Botanic Garden says:

“This is the fourth year we’re holding the Festival of Plants. It’s an important day for the Garden where we bring the wonders of the plant world into focus."

The event is open to all ages and includes drop in as well as scheduled activities.
