Illustrated talk on the development of garden history in Cornwall

The Cornwall Gardens Trust has put together an entertaining and informative talk about Cornwall’s garden history through the ages, from the Iron Age village at Chysauster near Penzance to present-day gardens including Eden and beyond.  We use many photographs and maps of gardens that the Trust has recorded over the years since it was formed in 1988.

We would be delighted to give the presentation to any interested groups, including schools and colleges.  So far, a number of Old Cornwall Societies, gardening clubs and WIs have enjoyed the talk, and if you think your own association would welcome the talk, please contact  There is no charge made by the Trust, although a small payment to cover the speaker’s expenses would be welcomed but this is not essential.  We bring our own PowerPoint projector so all we need is electricity and a wall or screen to show it on, and the talk lasts approximately 45 minutes.  The talk can be followed by questions, and hopefully a cup of tea!
