Plants, Darwin and birds attend Clavijero Botanic Garden Day!
15 May 2009
From 24th - 26th April the Francisco Javier Clavijero Botanic Garden in Xalapa, Mexico, held its Garden Day.
The festival was framed by the National Botanic Gardens Day and Plant Conservation Day (18th May) and aimed to foster awareness about the sustainable uses of Mexican plant diversity. A wide range of events, including activities dealing with wild plants and animals, art, leisure and education, were held to highlight the relationships between humans and the natural environment.
Garden staff employed a wide variety of educational, artistic and scientific methods to communicate the importance of plant biodiversity and the vital contribution of scientific centres, like botanic gardens, to plant conservation. A large number of children and adults from schools and families spent the days taking part in the activities alongside professional horticulturists.
