Before COVID we had brilliant December outings to the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin, where the marvellous people in the Gardens very kindly agreed to lead the IWT Dublin branch on a mid-Winter tour – “The Bots in Winter”.
While the gardens were absolutely gorgeous all year round, the “hidden bits” at this time were fascinating
Now again we’re back there. We meet at the Bots at 11:00 on Sunday, December 10th for what we suspect will again be a much different ‘Winter’, since climate change seems to have had a huge effect on the growth. As with all our outings, enthusiasts of all ages are welcome, but be prepared for Irish weather – and, in particular, make sure younger enthusiasts are well wrapped up.
And parking at the Bots can be problematic. Your best bet might be to find somewhere safe and legal within walking distance – and walk!
And, again, we need committee members. There’s not much involved, but we’d LOVE to get our Green Drinks back again. Could you please help – approach anyone in an IWT Hi-Viz at the Bots.
Date & Time: December 10th @ 11am
Location: the Bots, National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin
