Event description

Description

Explorers through the centuries have learnt to value the traditional knowledge of tribal people that has been
honed by the need to live in balance with nature. Join a family storytelling walk through the tropical rainforest to discover the powerful plants that can sustain, cure or kill!

This event is running alongside Plant Scenery of the World, an exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Botanics' iconic modernist glasshouses, the 'Front Range', opened in 1967 to house plants collected in tropical regions by British explorers. The exhibition presents new, commissioned and existing work by Laura Aldridge, Charlie Billingham, Bobby Niven, Oliver Osborne and Ben Rivers alongside rare and unseen archival material, botanical paintings by Isik Güner, Jacqui Pestell and Sharon Tingey and historical paintings by R.K. Greville from the Garden’s own collection.

Children must be accompanied by an adult on this walk.

Meet at the entrance to the Temperate Palm House 10 minutes before the start of the event.
