Garden TV star to champion urban sustainability

A seminar promoting sustainable landscape design is being held at the Garden Museum in December.

The one-day seminar, Greening Urban Spaces: Practical and Social Benefits of Sustainable Garden and Landscape Design, will be chaired by television presenter and garden designer Joe Swift.

The event takes place on 1 December and is being hosted by the revamped Garden Museum (formerly the Museum of Garden History) in partnership with the Landscape Institute.

The seminar is aimed at raising awareness of how plants and permeable surfaces can be used in urban areas for aesthetic, psychological, environmental and practical benefits.

The presentations will range from advising on practical issues such as selecting permeable surfaces and using vertical and elevated planting, to planning issues and appreciation of the health benefits of plants and green spaces.

The day is for anyone interested in garden and landscape design and build, and costs £50 including lunch (£40 for Friends of the Museum).
