The symposium will be held on 30-31 August 2018, from 9AM-5PM (including morning and afternoon coffee/snacks and lunch), at the Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall. With a mixture of lectures and moderated discussion panels, as well as plenty of time for professional networking, we aim to generate conversation and connections that will build upon Beth's lifework and contribute to ongoing developments in ecological design, management and plantsmanship. 

All attendees are invited to a special after-hours garden party at The Beth Chatto Gardens and Nursery on 30th August, from 6PM - 9PM. We'll have food and drinks, the run of the garden, the nursery will be open for browsing and sales, and staff will be on hand to answer questions in the gardens and give behind-the-scenes tours.
