17 Sep 2019
Seminar Theatre 1

George Plumptre, Chief Executive of the National Garden Scheme, will talk about the importance of gardens to people’s health and wellbeing, using the example of the brand new Horatio’s Garden, Oswestry which opens in Autumn 2019. He will explain how the charity has pioneered this programme since commissioning a report entitled ‘Gardens and Health’ published by the King’s Fund in 2016. Gardens and Health donations now make up a substantial part of the National Garden Scheme’s annual donations, currently £3 million.
