Fairtrade Fortnight 2014

Mon, 24/02/2014 - 9:00am - Sun, 09/03/2014 - 4:15pm
Botanic Garden

This year's Fairtrade Fortnight focused on the banana.  It's our favourite fruit, but farmers around the world are struggling to make a living by growing our curved yellow friend.

Visitors to the Garden during Fairtrade Fortnight were encouraged to find tropical crops in our Glasshouses, and learn what a difference Fairtrade can make to farmers.  There was also a host of fascinating banana facts displayed in our Palm House and Exhibition Room.

Our Fairtrade Fortnight display was featured in the Oxford Mail on Tuesday 25th February 2014.
