Kew Gardens is taking part in World Expo 2010 Shanghai China. Walk amongst hundreds of stunning photos of the Seed Cathedral (UK Pavilion) as part of a photo exhibition hosted by the Chinese Embassy in the Nash Conservatory. The Seed Cathedral is formed of 60,000 slender optical strands containing hundreds of seeds. It introduces visitors to the opportunity for change, growth and ideas embodied in seeds and showcases some of the threatened and useful plant species saved for our future in Kew's Millennium Seed Bank.
The Seed Cathedral represents the UK’s commitment, through Kew's Millennium Seed Bank partnership, to develop creative and innovative plant science and technology solutions to some of the most pressing environmental challenges affecting the world’s future – food security, sustainable energy, loss of biodiversity and climate change.
