The Gardens Trust
Message from The Garden Trust: Our Tuesday morning course for most of May and June is The Darker Side of Plants which will explore the marvels, mysteries, and murderous nature of the plant world – from fact to fantasy and fiction. with a range of expert speakers
We’re also hosting some more wonderful stand-alone lectures in partnership with county gardens trusts – on Persuasion in the Landscape, Louis XIV and Head Gardeners – and another of our excellent training workshops, this time on how to share your research via the National Heritage List for England.
And of course there’s still time to book for the rest of April’s talks too, as well for the rest of the lectures in our inspirational Other Voices series which runs through into June !
This course looks at excavations and research currently taking place in several important sites around the country. The course is presented by Mark Newman and Stephen Wass.
A series of 5 online talks exploring current archaeology with a 17th century bias on Tuesdays @ 10 from April 6th, £5 each or all 5 for £20. Click here to book.
