Help South London Botanical Institute celebrate 110 years!

Will you help South London Botanical Institute celebrate 110 years?
They are encouraging supporters, members, volunteers, local families, and anyone else, to take on a fun, botany-inspired challenge this summer!
Anyone can take part, and you can do the challenge from home.

With the Institute closed due to Covid-19, almost all of their activities and school visits have been postponed or cancelled. This also means they have no income coming in from events and room hire, which means less funding to support their education work in the future. At a time of ecological crisis, they need more people to learn about the importance and beauty of plants. They really need your help to keep the SLBI thriving.

Since this is their 110th year, instead of holding a birthday party, they are inviting everyone to join their Botanical Birthday Challenge! Your participation will help support the SLBI garden, collections and education work this difficult time and help secure their future. They hope it will also offer you a great opportunity to learn more about the world of plants!
