PlantBank fundraising success!
Thank you for your generous support of our PlantBank fundraising campaign. We are delighted to announce that we have reached our target.
An impressive $4.25 million has been raised by the Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust, supported by the efforts of the former Friends of the Botanic Gardens and the Royal Botanic Gardens Foundation (now the newly merged Foundation & Friends of the Botanic Gardens). This $4.25 million will sit alongside the contribution from the NSW Government for this $19.8 million build.
These are exciting times at PlantBank. With the fundraising target reached, we look forward to construction being completed early next year. The installation of the interpretation components will then commence, the landscaping will occur and around 25,000 plants will be planted, all propagated on site.
The construction blog www.plantbank.tumblr.com will keep you updated on the latest progress.
In mid to late 2013 the scientists will move into PlantBank and its new seed bank facilities will protect our growing collection, already estimated at 100 million seeds.
Thank you to everyone who supported PlantBank during the fundraising campaign. Together we have made a valuable contribution towards the future of our plant life.
