#plantchallenge

Tell your plant story

Continuing from the success of the 2020 #plantchallenge campaign ‘My plantspiration in time of isolation’, in 2021 we tell the next chapter of the Botanic Gardens story.

This time focusing on the ‘Power of Plants’. Inviting you to highlight the work of your garden and/or tell your story on the ‘Power of Plants’, specifically their influence on weather and climate stabilisation, their value as food, wildlife habitat, in research and medicine, and their impact on our wellbeing.

All our plant stories combined, create a strong message nationally and internationally, towards growing awareness, generating interests in and promoting understanding of the important role AUS & NZ Botanic Gardens play in plant conservation.
