On the 9th of September, we have the pleasure of welcoming all the participants of NORDROCS to a welcome reception in the Linnaean Gardens of Uppsala. The garden is an oasis hidden behind a planked fence on Svartbäcksgatan in central Uppsala. The Linnaeus Garden with the professor’s residence is the site of the first botanic garden. This is where Carolus Linnaeus made his observations on the transition of seasons and variation of nature amid blossoming flower beds, tight hedges, marshes, and ponds.

Approximately 1,000 species are grown in the garden following the Linnaean Sexual System.
