The Gardens Trust Conference 2017, based at the University of Plymouth, will combine lectures and visits in and around the city. The three day fully-inclusive package will explore eighteenth century landscapes developed on earlier gardens, a Victorian public park, memorial and twentieth century civic spaces. It will discuss themes and challenges faced by professionals, custodians and managers working in such historic landscapes. How can conservation be balanced with ensuring they are sustainable and relevant in the twenty-first century?
