Gardeners from the South London Botanical Institute (SLBI) in Tulse Hill are due to visit the Botanic Garden of Rome at the end of April as part of a new botanical exchange partnership between the two organisations. The partnership is being funded by Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) in collaboration with the Interactive Community of Arboreta (ArbNet), under a new scheme to share knowledge, skills and resources within the international botanic garden community. The ultimate aim is to enhance plant conservation around the world.
The partnership grant will support an exchange visit to each garden in spring 2018 to coincide with the most suitable time in the garden as well as with local events. Gardeners from Rome will be coming to the SLBI in June.
