Food Forever

About

Food: we love it and we can’t live without it. But the world is changing, and so is what we eat.

Step into the future of food at Kew's event of the summer and discover how we can transform our planet for good through four new art installations and a major exhibition across the Gardens.

There will also be a whole host of talks, guest menus by inspiring chefs as well as weekend drop-in workshops and activities – plenty to sink your teeth into!

There's even a daily free walking tour about edible plants and the future of food in a changing climate.

Join Kew to discover what we can do together to combat climate change and biodiversity loss, to protect our food from extinction and secure a sustainable future for us all.
