We have had a lot of interest in the past at visiting the Writhlington Orchid Project. In the past this hasn’t been possible because our greenhouses were a health and safety nightmare and the labs were all miles away.
Fortunately (as I’m sure you’re aware!) we now have a brand new, State of the art Greenhouse and Micropropagation facility which we are all very keen for you to come and have a look round! We’re hoping to have open days on a regular basis, which will include tours of the greenhouses, lectures and have-a-go at Microprop, as well as various other features from other departments at the school.
The Open Days will hopefully start from October this year, after our Grand Opening Event in Late September. We’re keen to make this a huge event and look forward to seeing you all there.
Exact dates for this event will hopefully be confirmed by the end of May. Watch this space!
