Newton's Space Saplings need homes

The search for new homes for Newton's Space Saplings is well underway. Our Space Saplings have an impecable pedigree, have experienced microgravity and now deserve somewhere special to set root and call home.

The UK Space Agency, the National Trust and Kew, who worked together on the project, teamed up with South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) in Lincolnshire to launch a competition to find partners that share a commitment to inspire future Newtons to host the trees.

Organisations have bid for one of the eight remarkable saplings, explaining how they will give them space to grow, engage new audiences and promote curiosity. 

The Campaign to find new homes for the Space Saplings is NOW CLOSED.  Judging will take place in Autumn 2019.
