Come and enjoy the guided tour, quiz and popular science lecture and let yourself become fascinated by how important plants are for our existence.

Fascination of Plants Day is an international celebration of the importance of plants for people and the goal is to get people fascinated by plants and enthused about their importance in agriculture, forestry, the environment and other areas.

Guided tours and various stations in Universitetsparken in Ås, a series of slides, a park walk, a quiz, and posters will illustrate the place plants occupy in our daily lives and their importance for our existence on earth.

A 20-minute popular science lecture will be repeated on the hour and at half past the hour throughout the day.

You will also have a chance to meet grazing animals and buy offshoots of flowers and vegetables cultivated by students that you can plant yourself. The funds raised will go to non-profit causes.

The event is suitable for both young and old.
