presentation seminar exhibition
Plants are fascinating, don't you think?
There are many stories to tell about plants and what they can do. 
And we tell these stories during the international Fascination of Plants Day.

That is why we place a greenhouse in the middle of The Hague with beautiful and important stories about the importance of plants for society. 
We also organize a number of activities in the greenhouse, including for politicians, policy makers and teachers.
Of course we don't forget the general public. They are very welcome on Saturday to visit the greenhouse and become fascinated about plants!
