Arit Anderson & Tom Stuart-Smith: On 'Different ways of doing things'
The Orchard Barn, Serge Hill Lane, Bedmond, WD5 0RZ
10th July 2024 18:00pm - 20:00pm

Tom Stuart-Smith and Arit Anderson are both building show gardens this year, at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and RHS Hampton Court, respectively. They will reflect on this moment in the world of gardening and design, and the importance of making well-informed choices. Tom will share his experiments in biodiversity and new materials, with examples from the re-wilded garden at Knepp and The Plant Library at Serge Hill. Arit will share her experiences in designing for better environmental, social and wellbeing impact, bringing in examples from Sunnyside Rural Trust in Hertfordshire and Tuppeny Barn in Hampshire.

All money raised from ticket sales will go directly to the Serge Hill Project which is a not for profit CIC (Community Interest Company).
