    Sara Redstone, Plant Health & Quarantine Officer at The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew kindly offered to give an illustrated presentation on the history and function of this "behind the scenes" but enormously important building.

    Plant quarantine plays an important part in protecting our native biodiversity and is a vital element in the conservation of endangered species in Kew's partner countries.

    Sara's talk was extremely interesting and really opened our eyes to some of the problems her department have to cope with on a daily basis.
