National Plant Health Week

 

National Plant Health Week is an annual designated week of action to raise public awareness and engagement on how to keep our plants healthy.

 

It is a collaborative effort by over 30 organisations across the UK who are committed to protect the health of our nation’s plants and trees. This year we are celebrating the importance of being a good plant health citizen. Over the last 10 years we have undertaken a range of activities to support this work, which includes education, training, and citizen science work. In addition we have run numerous campaigns to raise awareness of the importance of plant health and biosecurity. These have been targeted at the general public and other key audiences.

 


With an emphasis on working together, the participants can reach a larger audience and more effectively communicate and amplify vital messages surrounding plant health. The week also incorporates the United Nations International Day of Plant Health 

This website sets out details of events and activities and key messages and tips that you can take to help protect our plant health.

In the UK we will be using this exciting opportunity to show how we can all help to keep plants healthy and contribute towards being the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it.

Healthy plants benefit people, the environment and the economy
