Year of Stories
Celebrate Scotland's Year of Stories in 2022
Stories are vital to every part of Scotland.
Scotland's stories reflect who we are and shape how others see us.
Scotland’s Year of Stories will spotlight, celebrate and promote the wealth of stories inspired by, written, or created in Scotland.
Thanks to support from the Year of Stories 2022 funded events programme, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh will host Of Scotland’s Soils and Soul: Scotland’s voices, telling Scotland’s stories, through the world of plants - a multi-sensory journey celebrating stories inspired by Scotland’s rich and diverse plant life across its four Gardens at Edinburgh, Benmore, Dawyck and Logan, from May to September 2022.
Further information about 'Of Scotland's Soils and Souls' will be available in the New Year.
