By April 18, the first batch of 260,000 pots of vegetables will be transplanted at the vegetable garden of the park of the upcoming 2019 Beijing International Horticultural Exhibition in Yanqing District of Beijing.
Currently, there are 60,000 pots at the garden and other vegetables in different varieties are being transplanted at the garden in batches.
The vegetable garden is the expo’s first attempt in opening an independent garden for exhibiting vegetables in history. The garden covers an area of 54 mu (3.6 hectares), including a 47.25 mu outdoor exhibition area and a 6.75 mu indoor exhibition area. The indoor exhibition area is divided into four sections of vegetable life, vegetable science and technology, vegetable museum and interaction experience, while the outdoor exhibition area is divided into forest and swamp, desert and grassland, countryside and courtyard and fun homeland sections.
With the theme of “creative farm and fun homeland”, the vegetable garden aims to bring visitors a multi-dimensional, interactive and artistic experience and showcase a close connection between vegetables and life by exhibiting vegetables’ history, present situation and future in nature, countrysides and cities.
The suppliers for the garden are three local vegetable production bases in Yanqing District.
