You can now view /review the presentations of the first webinar of the new cycle of the European symposium for the conservation of historic fruit and kitchen gardens that took place on February 23, 2023
After welcoming our new partner, SKBl, we had two series of presentations /discussions
How to restore a late 17th century fruit and kitchen garden, how to make it relevant to the needs of today’s society ? By Jemima de Brauwere, manager of the estate of Zuylestein that her family is committed to since 1630. Please visit the Zuylestein property (near Utrecht in the Netherlands)
Issues and questions when trying to adapt to climate change. Several European head-gardeners and gardeners helped us start exchanging on these issues with presenting three specific cases : Vegetables at Audley End by Kelly Fowler and Gemma Sturges, Trees at Chambord by Julien Billon. Water at Glorieux park (near Eindhoven) by Rob Plomp and Hennes Claassen (Dutch Head-gardeners Guild). We believe that we will discuss these issues further in the second cycle of the symposium!
