Workshop at Audley End marked the end of the first third of the project
EGHN and Schloss Dyck Foundation are partners in the Erasmus+ project “Craft Skills for Garden Conservation” with the international partners Vea and Euromasc in Norway, Gunnebo and Craft Laboratory in Sweden, Plant Network in the UK and Het Loo in the Netherlands.
The workshop on “trained fruit in historic kitchen gardens” was organised by Plant Network and hosted at Audley End Gardens on 30th and 31st August 2022. There was very positive feedback on the two fully packed days, e.g. “It was such a great experience, the teaching was high quality yet relaxed and informal, the gardens were amazing, and the other participants were so friendly and knowledgeable. For someone like me, at the beginning of a horticultural career, it was a fantastic experience.”
There will be six more webinars and workshops until 2024, with “ornamental plants” (webinar on 25.11.2022) and “trees in climate change” (webinar on 10.01.2023) as next topics. Visit the website www.gardenconservation.eu to sign up for the webinars and to see if new options for registration to a workshop have been opened.
Webinars are for free. Minor costs may be charged for the workshops. The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
