Trellis is delighted to announce our 2nd online Seminar Series. The event, which takes place from the 7-11th March this year, will bring together experts from around the world who use gardening to support people’s wellbeing. A line-up of revered presenters, including practitioners from Germany, Iraq, Italy, Belgium and Australia, will share their extensive and diverse experiences and knowledge of social and therapeutic horticulture. The programme also boasts a great home grown panel of community champions from a variety of projects across the country which support vulnerable, disabled and disadvantaged people of all ages.
With a wonderful mix of theory and practice, this series of online seminars builds on the huge success of last year’s inaugural event and is sure to be of great value to everyone who uses gardening to help people of all ages improve their health and wellbeing.
Fiona Thackeray, Head of Operations at Trellis, says of the event:
“The overwhelming success and positivity around last year’s online seminar series made it an easy decision to repeat it this year as covid-19 continues to disrupt our everyday lives. We are delighted to once again be able to offer such a diverse range of topics and experiences from around the world to share with everyone who is involved in therapeutic gardening”.
