Buy Christmas Lecture: Sissinghurst - Revitalising Vita Tickets
– Revitalising Vita’by Troy Scott Smith
Troy Scott Smith has been Head Gardener at
Sissinghurst Castle Gardens since 2013.
Before this he was Head Gardener at Bodnant, a celebrated but very
different NT garden. Troy will tell us about
the 7-year project which he and his team are carrying out to bring about a more
authentically Vita Sackville West image, a celebration of beauty, intimacy and
emotion. There will be an opportunity
to meet him in person over lunch.
We are a conservation charity working to protect the county's many historic parks and gardens for future generations.
We work with garden owners and local and national bodies to highlight, protect and encourage the conservation and restoration of designed landscapes, ranging from stately homes to public parks, cottage gardens to cemeteries. Principally funded by over 500 members, we run visits, lectures and events where members can share their interest and knowledge in a sociable atmosphere.
Through its research and recording programme, the Trust undertakes and supports research on sites of historic interest, including sites that the Trust has rediscovered, as well as on other related topics. We share knowledge through our Journal and also seek to inspire the gardeners of the future through imaginative projects with schools.
