Guided by one of our illustrated maps, come on an adventure with our curious Garden Philosophers. Join them to investigate the science, mythology and mechanics of gardens through workshops and storytelling – and report back to the Mechanical Seed which has sprouted and unfurled into a magnificent magnetic heuristic exhibition.
