Since April was Eco-month, on April 5th, we went to visit the Phytotron at Queen’s Biosciences. The manager, Dale Kristensen, warmly welcomed us and gave us a knowledge-filled tour of the place. It is interesting to learn the many uses of plants in our daily life. The food we eat; the house we live in; the medicine we take; the clothes we wear are all sourced from the wonderful plants living on this planet. We were delighted to see vanilla, cocoa, and banana trees there. How can we survive without these yummy fruits? The world-class facilities is also interesting to see. It is fun to see how university students are using these plants to do research. We also learned that like animals in danger, there are also plants facing extinction. Therefore, it is important to protect these plants and take good care of them.
