Wednesday 13th October 2021

Andrew Cannell, Head Gardener, American Museum, Bath

Wisley trained Andrew will describe the changes and developments made in the gardens of the American Museum over the last few years.

The project revamped the George Washington 1799 colonial Upper Garden and developed the New American Garden with its bold swathes of grasses and perennials.

Andrew will tell us how these two projects came to be and how they sit within the tranquil and quintessentially English setting of the Midford valley.

This meeting is being held at the American Museum.

Members and their guests only, due to covid restrictions. Information about the arrangements will be sent to members via email.

The View from Federal Twist: a New Way of Thinking about Gardens, Nature and Ourselves

 

Thursday 4th November, 2021

7.30pm

James Golden, horticulturalist and author

 

James is an innovative and naturalistic gardener from New Jersey.

 

This celebrated garden maker will tell us about Federal Twist, a garden that has loose boundaries and so integrates closely with the natural world that surrounds it. A truly special place.

This is an opportunity to explore the relationship between gardens, nature and ourselves.

James' book, which charts the development of this place of changing qualities and views  is due to be published in the UK this October.

 

This meeting is being held at the American Museum.

Members and their guests only, due to covid restrictions. Information about the arrangements will be sent to members via email.

 

Meetings for the rest of the 2021/22 season will be added as soon as the dates and speakers are confirmed.

Please be aware that due Covid there will be special arrangements, including a change of venue for 2021.

Information will be released as soon as details are finalised.
