Nigel Dunnett among top line up for next month's sustainable landscaping event

Some of the UK’s leading experts in ecology, landscaping and the environment will speak at a conference at the University of Bristol next month, covering subjects including pollinating insects, environment change, sustainable landscapes and low maintenance grasses.

The deadline to register for the Top Green supported conference which takes place at the University of Bristol on 18 July, has been extended until the end of June. 

Environment and sustainability consultant for Grass Engineering and Top Green Howard Wood said: "We intend this very special day to be an opportunity for those involved in specific aspects of the groundcare and the landscaping industry to share new ideas and research information.

Among the leading speakers booked are two University of Bristol academics. Professor of Ecology and Head of School at Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, Professor Jane Memmott,  who specialises in environmental change, biodiversity and pollinating insects and Dr Katherine Baldock whose interest is interactions between plants and their pollinators, will join Professor Nigel Dunnett of the University of Sheffield.

Stephen Alderton of Top Green and Euroflor, landscape architect Kym Jones, soil scientist Tim O’Hare, Rob Donald of Green Global Solutions, and representatives from Bristol City Council will also take part in the event.

Places at the event on July 18 are limited. The fee for the one-day workshop, supported by Top Green, is £85, which includes lunch and refreshments. There is an option to stay on for an evening networking session and a tour the next day.
