Thursday 20 October 2022:  Kevin Frediani, “Over the Garden Wall’ 

Winter evening talks will restart on Thursday 20 October when Kevin Frediani, Curator of Dundee University Botanic Garden and Grounds will give a talk “Over the Garden Wall: celebrating 50 years of the University of Dundee Botanic Garden.”

The talk will explore how a space in the west end of Dundee became a special place for people and a home for some of the world’s rarest plants.  Kevin Frediani is now the fourth curator and he will describe the cumulative work to cultivate a living collection.  It will be the story of a garden coming of age, whose globally focussed past is helping inform a local landscape that is more resilient to the future over its garden walls.

The talk will take place as usual in Dundee Arts Society Roseangle Gallery, starting at 7.00pm (1900).  Guests are welcome and there will be the opportunity to chat over a glass of wine afterwards.
