BotanyDepot – a new depository for free teaching resources for informal and formal botanical education.

I recently started the Botany Depot ( as part of an effort of making more ideas and materials available to everybody and anybody teaching botanical subjects in formal or informal settings at all education and age levels. This website offers free links and downloads of materials that have been developed by a diverse set of educators. It is open to anyone who wants to share their educational products freely (and still keep copyright of their own products). Materials include lesson plans, labs, book links or book reviews, video links, slides and handouts, and much more – all in an easy to download interactive web format. Posts are tagged with keywords (morphology, ecology, reproductive biology, deserts, childrens’ activities…) and types of materials (books, videos, manuals…), and keyword tags provide easy searches. Additional materials will continuously be added, and contributors of more materials are welcome. BotanyDepot is a complementary depository of education material already present in PlantEd and other teaching websites for more formal education roles. BotanyDepot materials are available to anybody that is interested in learning more about plants, on their own, or in a teaching role to others.
