About the event

The Botanics is a world-renowned centre for plant science and education, aiming to explore conserve and explain the world of plants for a better future. Working as part of the SEFARI collective of the Scottish Environment, Food and Agricultural Research Institutes the Garden offers a programme of family-friendly activities reflecting current research, as well as opportunities for adults and young people to explore topical issues through discussions, workshops and exhibitions.

During the Edinburgh Science Festival, you can enjoy a wide range of online and face to face experiences at the Garden, including new exhibitions, crafting workshops, SciMart – a Farmer’s Market with a science twist – and immersive art installations, including the Scottish debut of In Memoriam – Luke Jerram’s temporary artwork dedicated to the victims of the COVID-19 pandemic and a tribute to the frontline health and social care workers on the frontline during the pandemic.
