CHANGE OF JUNE LECTURE: Twenty-first century gardens: new ideas and challenges
Dr Patricia Andrew FSA FSAScot AMA FRSA
Tuesday 13 June 2017

Following the unexpected cancellation of our advertised lecturer, we have been fortunate in finding another NADFAS lecturer at short notice.

Dr Patricia Andrew  FSA FSAScot AMA FRSA

Twenty-first century gardens: new ideas and challenges 

The well-illustrated lecture will examine current and future trends in gardens and gardening. What exactly constitutes a garden in the twenty-first century? How do today’s ideas and practice relate to the past? And how will climate change, and social expectations and lifestyles, shape future developments? These issues will be discussed with reference to recent and future garden developments in Britain and around the world.
