"Gardening is one of the healthiest occupations of the population and the most productive in terms of profitability, not to mention its ennobling and softening effect on human character."

The Russian garden in Beijing is not just green.
It is also smart. Top Russian research centers, such as the Lorch Potato Research Institute and Novosibirsk State Agricultural University, presented their products and solutions at the EXPO. Chinese visitors had an opportunity to see an aeroponic system (growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil) and entomophages (specially grown insects which kill aphids).

Blooming gardens in different regions of Russia and the world-famous play by Chekhov formed the image of a genuine Russian garden: bright, fragrant in summer, with shady corners and sunny meadows. The theme of the Russian exposition at EXPO 2019 – "Russian Garden: From Roots to Fruits" – Is meant to demonstrate our respect for traditions and commitment to future achievements.
The revolutionary reshape of city parks in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Krasnodar, Tula, Kaliningrad is a worthy experience of modern Russia, which we are proud of and show to the world. After all, by the area of green spaces, the capital of Russia has already outstripped such "parkland" agglomerations as New York and London.
On an area of 1,800 square meters there are three art objects symbolizing the harmony of nature and man in modern parks. Around them landscapes illustrating the biological diversity of the regions of Russia were recreated: Midland, Far East, Crimea and Caucasus. The plants on display are arranged taking into account their natural stratification: from scrubby to tall plants, shrubs and trees.

The internal exhibition includes a cinema and a space for temporary exhibitions. Visitors will be able to see on the screens the unique works of authorship devoted to domestic developments and achievements in ecology, botany, selection, park and landscape art, as well as films about the unique nature and flora of Russia.
The exhibitors sought to show Russia not only as a country whose residents for hundreds of years, from noble estates to Soviet period Central Recreation and Leisure Parks, are able and love to set up garden and park projects.
Modern Russia is actively developing "green" innovations that help to grow a disaster resilient garden and vegetable crops, to use soil carefully, to obtain unique delicious fruits from nature.
The changing exposition of Russia presents unique technological achievements of Russian companies and research centers.
Visitors can get acquainted with them interactively: not only observe and take photographs, but also taste the exhibits.
