Our newsletter GT news (formerly GHS news) is published three times a year; in spring, mid-summer and late autumn.
It contains a mixture of news, details of our (and other people’s) events, members’ research and other views, and less formal articles.
It has 40 pages and is printed in full colour, using soya based ink, recycled, carbon balanced paper and biodegradable mailing film.
GT news is mailed to members but a selection of older and current issues are (freely) available below. There isn’t always space in our paper publication for full reports of all our events. As most of these include opportunities for study, as well as the sheer enjoyment of the gardens and other designed landscapes, we plan to publish the full version online, below the relevant issue of GT News.
OUR LATEST EDITION
Our re-designed Winter 2019 edition is dominated by articles arising from our Summer Conference, concentrating on the life and work of Mavis Batey and her part in the conservation efforts of the Garden History Society, now the Gardens Trust.
This series of articles is brought right up to date with David Lambert‘s article on Conservation and the Environment, and his reasons for becoming a part of Extinction Rebellion.
It also includes articles by David Marsh on Anniversaries,
an update on parksandgardens.org from Philip White,
on Jemima Marchioness Grey at Wrest Park, by Jemima Hubbersty,
on the garden at Bottengoms, Essex, by Jill Devon,
and The Highbury Pergola project.
Our summer 2019 edition is dominated by our recent tribute to Christopher Thacker at the Garden Museum. He was the first editor of our journal, Garden History, the summer edition of which goes out with this mailing. Our recent event at Bramham Park seems to have tied in well with the themes brought up by our exploration of Christopher’s life and work in garden history.
