How to join our activities

The Craft Skills for Garden Conservation-project aims to find, develop and share best practice in the various fields of Garden Conservation. A part of that is arranging webinars in the winter season and practical workshops in the other seasons.

Joining the webinars
Registration links will be available in the Overview project activities as soon as the webinars are open for registration. After your registration, you will receive an e-mail from Zoom with some information and a link to the webinar. The webinars are free of charge.

Joining the workshops
Of course, we would like to welcome all interested to join the workshops, but for practical reasons only a limited number of participants can join. How many depends on the topic and the venue, and the host will provide information about the workshop here at the website. When the workshop is open for application, an apply-button will turn up in the Overview project activities. We encourage all interested joining one of our workshops to apply.

A committee will select who will join the workshops by using a set of transparent criteria. We aim to encourage a diverse range of participants to attend the workshops. We would like a wide geographical spread, range of abilities and levels of expertise. Most of all we would like those attending to be interested in the topic, keen to learn and contribute as much as they can to the conservation of heritage gardens, and want to share their new knowledge and skills with others.

The participation in a workshop is free, but everyone must cover their own expenses connected to travelling, board and lodging. The applicants will be encouraged to apply for funding from a range of regional resources. Information about the cost and these possibilities will be added in the promotion of the project activities.

Other Garden Conservation

We cooperate with other actors in the heritage garden community throughout Europe, and here is some info about upcoming events hosted by some of them.


Join the team at Gunnebo gardens in Sweden for a two-day practical workshop in which we investigate the impact of historical techniques and tools on both the aesthetic and horticultural development of hedges.


On the 7th of February 2023, Gunnebo House and Gardens is hosting the webinar on Hedges and Topiary cultivation in Historic Gardens.
It’s time! The Orangery at Gunnebo will finally be opening and we’re celebrating by inviting you all to our very first crafts festival. Are you interested in heritage crafts like wood and stone carving, timber framing or how to make a tiled stove? Would you like to know more about orangery plants and mowing with scythes? Then this is the perfect event for you.


Gunnebo is hosting this four days workshop, with the topic ‘Lawns and meadow cultivation in Historic Gardens’ which is a follow up on the webinar earlier this year.
