Week of green infrastructure events planned at London's Garden Museum

London's Garden Museum is running a week of events dedicated to greening cities.

Green Infrastructure Week, from April 28 to May 4 mixes a range of disciplines – from horticulture to fashion, with the aim of making the museum "a hub of cross-disciplinary dialogue".

How to find delight in our cities, how a landscape can be healthy and what is best and worst practice when creating green public space within private developments are all issues under examination.

The week follows the High Line Symposium in 2012 and also involves the Landscape Institute (LI), English Heritage and the National Trust, with the European Commission and CLS Holdings sponsoring events.

The LI is also running an ideas competition on the subject of green infrastructure and the week also looks at the history of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens and considers how it can influence the development of public parks today.

For a list of events visit The Garden Museum website.
