Craft Skills in Garden Conservation: “Orangery Plants” and “Pathways and Walls”

Join international experts during two webinars

Partners of the CSGC project will host two more webinars during the autumn: Together with the lead partner Vea in Norway, Schloss Dyck and EGHN host a webinar on “Management of orangery plants in historic gardens” on 7th November 2023. Many orangeries in Europe have been turned into events spaces. But there are still several parks and gardens in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and the UK that maintain these special buildings for their original purpose and look after important collections of citrus fruits and other tender plants. We hear from experts on the topic from the perspective of cultural heritage, sustainability and biodiversity as well as the effects of climate change.

On 21st November 2023 Gunnebo House and Gardens in Sweden organises a webinar on “Pathways and stone wall management in historic gardens“.

Follow the links to the draft programmes of the webinars. The webinars are free to join, but you need to sign up to get a link from Zoom on the CSGC website.

Each webinar will be followed by a practical workshop on the same topic (likely in May or June 2024) – details to follow soon. The workshops are always very well applied for – thus put your name on the list right now.  At the recent workshop at Schloss Dyck and Schloss Benrath on “Trees in Historic Gardens in Climate Change”, we had to limit the number of participants to 24 persons.

Many presentations held during previous webinars and short reports as well as first videos from workshops can be found on the project’s YouTube channel.

The CSGC project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the EU.
