Plant Pathology Lab

Bringing Science into the Garden

For the last two years Foundation & Friends has been raising funds to support the revitalisation of the Plant Pathology Laboratory. 

We are proud to announce that with your help and generosity, a staggering $463K has been raised, exceeding our fundraising goal by $38K!

Construction has already started, opening the landscape surrounding the laboratory so visitors can engage and interact with the important plant science here at the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney. 

Our plant scientists are also thrilled with their new technology that will assist greatly with their vital scientific work. Enabling them to help ensure the safety of Australia’s food crops and native plants.

Your donation, no matter how big or small, has helped us reach our target!
