Growing the Future at the National Botanic Garden of Wales
January 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
On Friday, January 11, Miranda Janatka will give a talk entitled ‘From Kew Gardens to Gardeners’ World – my life in horticulture’, where she’ll discuss her career path from training and working at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew to her current role as a writer and researcher for BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine. Miranda worked as an primary school teacher in inner-city London, organising community gardening projects for children and their families before training formally in horticulture. Work at Kew included propagating plants for the restoration of the Temperate House and teaching propagation to staff at a botanic garden overseas. There will be an introductory talk by Lucy Witter, a Garden PhD Student, giving an update on her seed mix trials from the summer with some preliminary results and her plans for next year’s trials.
