More info on the National Garden

posted, 09/30/06
Yesterday’s post linked you directed to the U.S. Botanical Garden site, today I have a link to
the Washington Post with a very good article on the National Garden.

The article goes in depth to the history of the Gardens development. There looks like a lot of
politics involved at times. here’s hoping the garden turns out well. We need more culture in
our lives and great public gardens are part of that culture.

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.

    Not sure if we have a “National Garden” in the UK, but you might want to have a look at http://www.barnsdalegardens.co.uk/ns-index.html which is a series of gardens that were planted by a guy called Geoff Hamilton for the ever-popular Gardeners World BBC TV programme (see also http://www.gardenersworld.com/ ).

    Barnsdale Gardens was a plot of land that was used as a series of “projects” for the programme and grew to the size that it is now. After Geoff Hamiltons early death it was opened to the public and has been ever since.
