Well, this is it! Zoe, Zoe and Simon are en-route meaning we are officially in expedition-blogging-mode! Remember that here is the best place to be for up-to-date information about the expedition, including photos etc.
While in Durban, the team will also be blogging to the RHS Blogs so be sure to check both. If that’s too much work, however, and you subscribe to our RSS or E-mail Updates, then never fear! For every update to the RHS Blogs will also be put here!
As part of our leap forward into the 21st century (new greenhouses, new labs, new website), we’ve started twittering!
If you would like to follow us and get all of our up-to-date information, in less than 140 characters, follow @wsbeorchids.
The orchid project expedition to Durban, South Africa and the BGCI is now fast approaching! Zoe and Zoe, along with Simon and Dr Lauren Gardiner (who you may remember from our Sikkim expedition) are flying out this Friday (30th).
During this period the team out there will be taking over my job of blogging – meaning that here is the one and only place to get all of the up-to-date information, along with what their doing and photos uploaded straight from the conference!
As always, comments are not only welcome, but encouraged on all posts we make – but particularly about the live expedition posts. We’ve been having some problems with spam – so do-not fret if your comment isn’t live right away!
At the end of the day with the seven Gangtok schools – they were asked to complete three sentences based on the day:
- In one week I will remember…
- The most interesting thing about today was…
- Orchids are…
Some of the responses given were very good and really helped ice the cake that was the best day of the trip! Have a read for yourself!
