An inspirational area that demonstrates the Garden’s commitment to a sustainable future
Conserving Our Future Zone demonstrates the Garden’s commitment to a sustainable future
Here you can see several displays where we show how we are reducing the level of natural resources we use and how we are helping to conserve biodiversity in Wales.
Conserving Welsh Plants – displays of plants from four Welsh national nature reserves
Welsh Whitebeams – a collection of rare and endangered varieties of trees from the Sorbus family
Living Machine – a pond where we recycle waste water
Biomass Boiler – an oven that burns wood to heat up our buildings
Canolfan Tyfu – classrooms where you can learn how to grow fruit and veg
Although not accessible to visitors, we also have a field behind the displays where we generate electricity from solar panels, and in an adjacent field, we create charcoal from wood provided by trees we manage on site.
We are a charity that receives financial support from the Welsh Government.
We are extremely thankful to The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and all those who play the National Lottery, for supporting the Botanic Garden’s five-year landscape restoration project.
