Case studies for the Botanic Gardens Education Network

About this project

I wrote ten case studies for the Botanic Gardens Education Network website, to highlight the diverse nature of plant-based education. The case studies highlighted educational activities taking place in botanical gardens, arboretums, parks, schools and other settings throughout the UK.


Once a year, the Eden Project is taken over by ‘Freaky Nature’ – a season of fun, interactive learning activities that introduce visitors to the weird and wonderful world of plants. The Freaky Nature season features a wide range of family-friendly activities based around unusual plants and their strange habits. One of the highlights is the Freaky Plant Tour, where visitors can discover poisonous, carnivorous and exploding plants, as well as those whose bizarre features help them survive.
