Heritage gardens encapsulate so much of the natural and cultural capital that sustains us during a time of crisis: tranquillity, beauty, productivity and biodiversity. These values require a huge amount of knowledge and skill. But both are in increasingly short supply. CSGC aims to address this problem by finding best practice in the various fields of Garden Conservation and sharing it among the partners and via the diverse bodies of Vocational Education and Training as well as professional horticultural associations.
