NiE In the Garden

All life depends on plants but with scientists estimating that one third of all flowering plant species are under threat of extinction, our earth is facing a crisis. This is where botanic gardens play an essential role. For centuries, botanic gardens have led research and generated knowledge about plants and how they grow (botany and horticulture).

Not only is a botanic garden a place where plants and landscapes can be enjoyed and where visitors can go for peace, relaxation, entertainment, recreation and education, they provide an opportunity into research, ecology and conservation. They are important sites because they maintain plants away from their natural habitat.
