About the project
The Into the Green poetry project is an exciting opportunity for children aged 11–16 to submit a poem in celebration of plants, gardens and green spaces.
Poems will be read by award-winning Oxford Professor of Poetry Alice Oswald and a selection will be collected in an anthology.
The project is being run jointly by Oxford Botanic Garden and the Bodleian Libraries, in celebration of 400 years of plant science in Oxford.
This resource pack aims to inspire young poets and provide guidance on writing and submitting their poem.
