Join the ‘Lawns and meadow’-workshop at Gunnebo!

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.

This workshop will focus on heritage gardening methods. Old tools and techniques for lawn and meadow cultivation will be practiced during the workshop. The idea is to develop a deep sense of practical garden history and garden conservation. With the scythe training, the aim is to develop sufficient skills to make the participants tradition bearers for this crucial aspect of meadow cultivation and care for biodiversity. The workshop is over four days to provide sufficient time for developing these craft skills among the participants, not just to demonstrate techniques. Another theme for the workshop is to highlight the latest knowledge regarding sustainable cultivation of meadows and historic lawns as well as looking at modern alternatives to lawns.

The practical workshop will give the participants the chance to take part in the actual cultivation and discuss topics like: How to work with authenticity, biodiversity and social values connected to lawns and meadows in historic gardens.
