Wild Gardens: Elevating the Nature of Modern Landscapes with
Date: Friday 9th November 2018
Over a century ago William Robinson employed Gravetye as his living
laboratory to envision gardens enlivened by elements of authentic wildness.
His experiments with naturalised populations of native and introduced plants
resulted in gardens of great beauty enriched by vibrant living diversity. With
today’s focus on ecological design, Robinson’s strategies are proving more
relevant than ever before. Utilising global examples from Gravetye to New
York City’s High Line, Rick Darke will illustrate how Robinson’s concept of
wild gardening is elevating the nature of modern landscapes.
Gathering at 12.00 noon for the talk, followed by lunch at 2.00pm in our wood panelled dining room.
£85.00 per person, aperitif, 3 courses, drinks and talk inclusive.
