Winding through the streets of Lebanon, there is a bus unlike any other, and the mobile "Green Hand Botanical Garden," is exactly as it sounds.The bus, which carries plants and seedlings rather than passengers, was built with the intention of educating over 10,000 students and a few thousand members of the public every year.The now four-month-old mobile botanical garden took 18 months to complete and required extensive research on how to maintain plants inside a bus, as no prior study on the issue seemed to be available.Green Hand is currently working on developing the mobile botanical garden to increase awareness on three main components: biological diversity, ecosystems, and the relationship between people and plants, according to Radwan.The bus tour also encourages municipalities it passes through to establish public gardens of native Lebanese plants.
