Event Type: 
These intimate tour focus not on meditation, but on learning to bring mindful awareness to oneself, and the world around us, through intentional observation and connections.

On this journey through the Garden, an experienced guide provides a foundation of the art of contemplative exploration. They will gently lead awareness away from the business of everyday life, toward the connection to nature and experience of peace.

Each tour is subtly tailored to the season, weather (occurs rain or shine), and garden spaces to help members continue to enhance future Garden visits through mindful practice.

The Future Role of Botanical Gardens

Botanic gardens such as Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew were born in the 18th and 19th centuries — the age of Empire. During this period and subsequently, Kew acquired extraordinary botanical collections and expertise. But what current relevance do these assets have? What is the purpose of institutions like RBG Kew in the 21st century and, in particular, what contribution can Kew make in helping to find solutions to urgent human and climate challenges? Drawing upon current case studies and looking to the future, Richard Deverell will set out an answer to this question and, in doing so, make the case for botanical science as the discipline that might just save the world.
