OUR LCGD AUTUMN INFO BURSTS – Colour, Texture and Tone – New Planting Designers
For the Autumn of 2021 our new season of info bursts will speak to 4 young Designers/Garden Designers who are making a mark through their planting designs.
Over 4 evenings our designers will talk about their work and especially how they approach their planting designs. We’ll explore their ideas for new planting and find out more about particular projects and why they are important to their planting development.
There will be time at the end to ask your questions in conversation with Andrew Fisher Tomlin, Course Leader for our Planting Design Diploma.THIS SEASON’S INFO BURSTS WILL RAISE FUNDS FOR GREENFINGERS – CREATING MAGICAL GARDENS FOR CHILDREN IN HOSPICESEach Info Burst session is at the end of your working day so that you can have the evening free.
