Thank you to all of the speakers and over 500 attendees who travelled from around the world to be with us for these special few days. We are grateful that we could celebrate and honour Beth Chatto through such tremendous learning and rich conversation. The warmth and generosity all brought to the gathering will be felt long after.
As a legacy of this Symposium, we have recorded the lectures and panels, which will be made freely available in the weeks to come (please have patience as we edit them). If you were unable to attend, but would like to be notified when the recordings are available, please sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of this page.
On 30-31 August 2018 the Beth Chatto Education Trust will host a special gathering of gardeners, designers and plantspeople in honour of Beth Chatto.
Join us at the University of Essex as we hear from speakers from around the world who are re-imagining ecological gardening in both design and practice, and working to further advance and expand our plant palette. A private garden party will also be held at the Beth Chatto Gardens and Nursery for our dear friends and fellow gardeners.
All proceeds from the Symposium will go to support the work of the Beth Chatto Education Trust.
