Description

The day is being organized in conjunction with the Birkbeck Garden History Group. The BGHG was founded in 2002 by students of the Birkbeck College’s Garden History courses which began in 1995. The group arranges lectures and visits on Garden History. Membership is open to all those who have studied garden history or attended a BGHG Study Day, and the group especially welcomes everyone who attends today. You can find more information about BGHG at:     https://birkbeckgardenhistorygroup.wordpress.com
