TREE FOLKORE AND POETRY READING
Mandy Haggith, is passionate about trees, forests and their people. At this talk Mandy will share poems she has found and her own, focusing on Scotland's native Ash and will talk about the rich culture of trees.
This is one of a series of 18 events celebrating Scotland's own tree species hosted and led by Mandy Haggith during her residency in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in July.
Using new media, four poets will document their experiences during month-long residencies at each of the four gardens of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh - Sue Butler at Benmore, Argyll in June; Mandy Haggith in Edinburgh in July; Jean Atkin in Logan, Dumfries and Galloway in August and Gerry Loose at Dawyck in the Borders in September.
