Botanical Gardens and Conservation in the 21st Century
Posted 3 years ago by Toronto Charities / 63 views
Botanical gardens have a long and fascinating history, and are constantly evolving to address contemporary needs. In the past 40 years they have increasingly focused on plant conservation and human well-being. Conservation work by botanical gardens is as diverse as the gardens themselves and, among other things, includes seed banks, plant collections, ecological restoration and education on the importance of plant diversity for economic, medicinal and cultural purposes. David will present inspirational examples of botanical gardens that have embraced their new conservation role.
