  [Aroid-l] Glasshouses, Botanic Gardens & sustainability
From: drplantman at gmail.com (Jeremy P) on 2008.06.16 at 05:19:45(17844)
Hello Everyone,

I have a few quick questions for you, and if you could spare 5 minutes to
make some suggestions I'd be most appreciative! I'm putting together a
potential study tour for myself, focusing on sustainability in design and
practice in glasshouses & nurseries - primarily those in botanic gardens,
universities & similar organisations. I'm looking globally, and would love
your thoughts on the following:

- institutes or similar places that have glasshouses &/or nurseries built on
sustainable principles;
- any new projects/buildings/places being built that incorporate
sustainability and responsible resource use into the design, or even better,
are primarily focused on these principles;

I'd also love your suggestions for:
- botanic gardens, universities or similar public spaces that have a
tropical collection and you consider to be a top rate destination;

I'll be collating all the feedback I get and can send it on to interested
bods. I'll also post it on the Tropical Talk Forum (see link below). And
remember: the suggestion you may think is too obvious or simple may just be
the one I'm looking for! So please don't hold back on sending your thoughts

Many thanks for your time and ideas!
