The Gardens Trust – October talks and lectures programme

October Events

Bucks Gardens Trust members are affiliated to The Gardens Trust who act as the umbrella organisation for all county trusts. Please do book if you are interested in any of the lectures which are either free or a small nominal cost. Below is the programme for October from The Gardens Trust.

“As the weather changes and the evenings start to draw in why not join us on  one of our new lecture series. It’s a busy month!

On Monday evenings our Commercial Gardening series takes a long look at Veitches,  the most significant British nursery of all time and their plant hunters.  Tuesday mornings brings a second series on Garden Archaeology,  looking at the very latest findings from investigations- some still ongoing – from a range of sites around the country including Stowe and Nostell Priory.  And then it’s Surrey’s turn to share some Unforgettable Gardens on Wednesday evenings.

We’re continuing our collaboration with FOLAR with more  lectures on commercial landscapes on Tuesday evening,  and starting a new partnership with the Japanese Garden Society.  We’re also hosting Essex Gardens Trust’s 25th anniversary lecture by Matthew Wilson, and a joint venture in aid of the National Gardens Scheme and the Sussex and Kent County Gardens Trusts with Caroline Holmes.

Finally there are two free event organized by our Historic Landscape Project.  The first is about how volunteers can contribute to Local Heritage Lists to highlight & protect locally significant historic designed landscapes introduced by Victoria Thomson, Head of National Strategy at Historic England. The second  is an informal session for owners, managers & supporters of historic designed landscapes to share ideas for celebrating ‘Unforgettable Gardens’

In other words there’s something for everyone!”
