The PL❤️NTS exhibition, originally slated for March 2020, has been rescheduled in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Please join us for the exhibition opening on 18 July. In these unprecedented times, your support for the vibrancy of the arts and for green spaces like the Botanic Gardens is more crucial than ever before.
PL❤️NTS is a brand new art exhibition inspired by the love of plants in the green heart of the city, the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
Brought to you by Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens, we are shining a spotlight on the incredible diversity of plants living here and around the world. And we're also telling the story of their friends: the many pollinators that disperse seeds and keep the Gardens humming.
