BOOKING OPENS SOON FOR…
THE HISTORY & FUTURE OF COMMERCIAL GARDENING
I’m pleased to announc that next term’s Grapevine course at the IHR will be on the history of nurseries, market gardens and seed companies etc., with a look at the future of the British horticultural industry as well. I will be leading it but we’ve also got some excellent outside guest speakers – including this year’s Master of the Worshipful Company of Gardeners, Dr Heather Barrett-Mold, Dr Jill Francis, Val Bott and Dr Audrey Gerber. There will also be two visits – one to the Museum of English Rural Life at Reading University to see their some of their extensive archives, and the other to Rochford’s nursery, with Paul Rochford, the owner who is also a past Master of the Gardeners.
The course will run for 11 weeks from Tuesday 14th January until Tuesday 24th March and will cost £258 [+ booking fee]. The provisional programme and booking details etc are, as usual, on Eventbrite and in order to be fair to everyone tickets will not be available until 9.00 on Sunday 17th November.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about it
