Kew Gardens Poem
Of the planet
A field to
Kew Royal Botanical Gardens in South West London is a colourful and vast world of flowers, plants, fungi and insects. They hold the most diverse botanical collection in the world, no doubt due to being over 250 years old. With attractions such as the Palm House, pictured below, themed gardens, the Creeper and Climbers playhouse and Tree Top walk, it’s no surprise this place is so popular.
Kew Science Festival
And as Kew Gardens continues to share and expand their knowledge, expertise and understanding of plant life, it makes complete sense that they started a Science Festival that grabs ‘budding’ (sorry I went there) scientists early. In the current STEM orientated climate, they are positioned perfectly to take full advantage.
The whole day made me realise that Kew has some impressive facilities, many inspiring scientists and absolutely incredible collections.
