Schools Update - September 2021
It’s been a challenging 18 months for everyone, particularly those in education but at RBGE we’ve been working away in the background, taking this opportunity to reimagine our schools offer. We’re just finalising all the details but we’ll be relaunching our programme in early 2022 and we can’t wait to share it with you!
Until then we won’t be offering any facilitated schools sessions, however we want to welcome you back onsite as soon as possible and ensure you are still able to benefit from the learning opportunities within the garden, not to mention enjoying the huge well being elements of reconnecting with nature, therefore we’re delighted to announce that self-led visits in the Garden will be possible from 20th September 2021 onwards. We have a selection of self-guided resources available to help you make the most of your visit, covering different subject areas and age ranges.
Please note, however, that our Glasshouses are currently closed as part of Edinburgh Biomes - the Garden’s major restoration and construction project, as we work to protect our globally important Living Collection of plants for future generations. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Pre-booking is still required for self-led education visits to ensure we provide all the necessary information in advance. This includes information about entry points, toilets, risk assessment and last-minute closures, so is an essential part of your time with us and will make your planning a lot easier! Please complete the necessary information to enable us to provide this.
