The Garden 4 Life invites you to discover the natural world in your garden. Experts on gardening for wildlife will be there, and the programme of workshops will show you how to make small changes that make a huge difference to the creatures we share our world with.

The centrepieces of the Garden for Life are the One Planet Picnic Pocket Gardens. Pupils from Eco-Schools across Scotland were asked to design ‘pocket-sized’ gardens using plants for people, plants for wildlife, and celebrate the themes of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Garden for Life is supported by the Scottish Government, Keep Scotland Beautiful and the Garden for Life Forum.

The Scottish Government will be providing advice on plant health and bio security on their stand, for more information visit this page here.
