The Building of Bridgewater: breathing new life into old walls

Tue. 19 October 2021 at 10:30–12:00


Join Dr Sylvia Travers of RHS Garden Bridgewater in Salford for an online talk charting the regeneration of gardens at Bridgewater from mud to beautiful, productive and wildlife-friendly spaces.

Sylvia joined Bridgewater in October 2018 as team leader for the Inner Walled Garden. At this time the garden was a blank canvas of eleven acres, and Sylvia worked closely with the garden’s designers to achieve the regeneration of the Paradise and Kitchen gardens.

Hosted online by Friends of Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
