    We are delighted that Kew Society members have been offered a rare opportunity to visit the Economic Botany Collection at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. This is the oldest and perhaps the most fascinating of Kew's science collections.

    The tour is lead by Mark Nesbitt, who is senior Ethobotanist and Curator at RGB Kew and he will delve into Kew's history and current science research via a unique collections of rubber, lacebark, Chinese medicines and other useful plants.

    Members should be aware that the temperature is cool (17C / 63F) and the tour involves walking (including poorly lit paths) but no steps.

    The tour is very generously free, and there are 15 places available offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please email events@kewsociety.org to secure your place on the tour and to find out where to meet.

    We are exceedingly grateful to Mark Nesbitt for making this most generous offer to our members.
