During Fairtrade Fortnight the Botanic Garden is celebrating Fairtrade, ethical and organic clothing. Explore the tropical Palm House to see crops of cotton, find out the differences between a pair of Fairtrade jeans and a conventional pair, and why supporting Fairtrade cotton farmers is so important. See displays of clothes from ethical traders as well as some unusual fibres such as ‘peace silk’ and ‘naturally coloured cotton’.
Palm House open during glasshouse opening hours, 10.00am – 4.00pm. Garden open 9.00am – 5.00pm. Entry, adults £3.80, children free.
