Course Details

By exploring the history of Woodbrooke’s gardens through ‘objects’ we will glimpse the story of people, plants, design, water, sculptors and gardeners who have shaped this special space for over 100 years. Using maps, diaries, tools, photographs, books, plants and garden features we will examine the garden through time and assess why and how it matters today. Combining garden walks, interactive sessions examining ‘objects’, discussion and reflection, this is a chance to consider context, detail and management of this historic garden

Letta Jones is a Lecturer in Horticulture and Garden History who teaches courses on Quaker Botanists at Woodbrooke and Glenthorne.

Kelly Baker was trained at Kew Gardens and worked at Knebworth before starting in 2017 as Head Gardener at Woodbrooke.
