Upcoming Events for Gardens Trust Members
GT conference open for booking, Winter Lectures and Summer Events
Booking opens today for the Gardens Trust Annual conference in the Yorkshire Dales on 4-6 September. Centred on Richmond it promises a wonderful weekend of talks and tours, including visits to private gardens. We are expecting this to be as popular as ever, so book early to be sure of your place.
Our Winter Lecture series has kicked off with great success and we continue this into February with Dr Catherine Horwood exploring the life of Beth Chatto, who created one of the most influential gardens of the 20th century. Shortly after this, we are excited to welcome Dr Jill Raggett, to talk about the successful High Line in New York, showing how we can re-imagine spaces. As always, full details of all our Winter Lectures can be found on our events page.
In other event news, Dr Mark Spencer, who gave the January lecture on Herbariums, will lead a new ten week course in London on Botany for Gardeners, beginning in March. For the full course programme and booking details see here.
If the dark days are getting you down, then we are pleased to share news of a couple of upcoming summer events. The first is a rare opportunity to visit the hidden gardens of Chevening House, which has shaped the local and global landscape. Secondly, in 2020 Welwyn Garden City will be 100! The Gardens Trust is contributing to its celebrations with an exciting study day of lectures and a town walk with the Hertfordshire County Gardens Trust.
