SGD announces first speakers at 'Urban' conference

The Society of Garden Designers is going urban for its next conference and examining The New York High Line, the London Garden Bridge and water sensitive urban design.

Horticulturist and landscape designer Patrick Cullina, who was the founding vice president of horticulture and park operations at the High Line, and garden designer and plantsman Dan Pearson, who is designing the planting for the London Garden Bridge project have been announced as speakers at the ‘Urban’ autumn conference.

Former Landscape Institute president Sue Illman, who championed the cause of sustainable water design throughout her tenure, will also share her knowledge. Avant Gardener founder James Fraser will speak about his holistic approach to designing and building gardens.

Urban is held on 8 November at Imperial College London, with tickets available here.
