SLCU is busy preparing for one of the public engagement highlights of the year- the Festival of Plants in the Botanic Garden. The event is a wide ranging celebration of plants and a great opportunity for SLCU researchers to interact with people who are interested in plants.  SLCU members will be offering tours and talks, as well as running activities in the Pop Up Science Tent. Topics include phyllotaxis, what makes a tree a tree, and spot the mutant. Please come and join us!  Further details of the Festival are available here.
