Fascination of Plants Day

The fifth international “Fascination of Plants Day” will be launched by plant scientists across the world under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO).

The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture and sustainable production of nutritious food, as well as for horticulture, forestry and the production of plant-based non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation is also a key message.

 

Everybody is welcome to join this initiative!

Have you admired the wildflowers of Courtwood woods, but you haven’t been able to name them? Join this guided walk and together we’ll explore and learn together. Suitable for youngsters and adults, we might even see some of the insects dependent on our native flora.

Hopefully by the end of the day, you’ll know the names of 10 new wildflowers!
