#plantlove

Without plants, life on Earth would be impossible. They give us so much: oxygen, food, shelter, medicine. Plants lift our spirits and inspire us.

But we often overlook them in a phenomenon known as plant blindness—even as threats to their existence have never been greater.

At NYBG in 2019, we’re showing our love for plants with a year of exhibitions, programs, and projects exploring the essential connections between plants, people, and the environment.

We invite you to see plants, get to know plants, help save plants.

And join us in spreading the #plantlove.
