An opportunity for Gardens Trust and County Gardens Trust members to meet each other and discuss ideas, skills and questions. The Agenda will allow for discussions on CGT experiences of Conservation, Outreach and Research & Recording and includes a talk from Suzanne Carter, Community Engagement Consultant, on the HLF-funded Sharing Repton ‘Historic Landscapes for All’ activity at Warley Woods, in the West Midlands. Suzanne will share invaluable advice on ways to build your CGT’s membership and audience.

Meet-Ups are open to all members of any CGT and the Gardens Trust, no matter where in the country they are held.
