Communities in Nature Resources

The Communities in Nature project, supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, ran between 2010 and 2015 and aimed to supports botanic gardens to grow their social role. The project resulted in a range of resources including Caring for your Community: A manual for botanic gardens which brings together a selection of case studies to support botanic garden professionals who are interested in developing the social role of their gardens and whose work involves engaging with the public.
