The James Hutton Institute and the University of Dundee are coming together in the name of ‘Plant Power’.

They will be hosting an event on Saturday May 21st at Dundee Botanic Garden to highlight how fascinating plants are and how important they are to the past, present and future of humanity.

There will be a range of activities including hands-on scientific workshops, falconry, and face painting.

Dr Kelly Houston, a plant geneticist at the James Hutton Institute, said: “We hope that the Plant Power Day offers something for everyone to enjoy in the fantastic setting of Dundee Botanic Garden.

“If people go away having learnt more about the importance of plants then that is even better.”
