The Gardens Trust: Other Voices in Garden History
The diverse range of topics and speakers in this series of illustrated online lectures aims to uncover and celebrate some of the voices usually absent from the legacy of empire, colonialism and enslavement.
The series will offer a range of perspectives that fill gaps in our collective knowledge, and explore new ways of engaging with the whole history of gardens, landscapes and horticulture.
