The Beth Chatto Symposium

Location: Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall, University of Essex Colchester Campus, Colchester CO4 3WA

Date: 9 AM, 30 August 2018 to 5 PM 31 August 2018

The Beth Chatto Symposium is a special gathering of gardeners, designers and plantspeople in honour of Beth’s 95th birthday and the 40th anniversary of her

first book, The Dry Garden.

Join us at the University of Essex on 30-31 August 2018 to hear speakers from around the world that are re-imagining ecological planting in both design and practice, and working to expand our plant palette. Building upon Beth’s lifework, this ambitious programme will generate multidisciplinary conversation and professional connections that advance ecological horticulture.

Featured speakers: Marina Christopher, Olivier Filippi, Åsa Gregers-Warg, James Hitchmough, Peter Janke, Taylor Johnston, Peter Korn, Dan Pearson, Andi Pettis, Cassian Schmidt, Midori Shintani, Keith Wiley

Student tickets are available at a reduced price.

All proceeds from the Symposium will go to support the work of the Beth Chatto Education Trust.
