Trees And Troughs For The Resurgence 50th Anniversary Event

Tree Planters Awaiting Delivery

Between the 22nd and 25th September Worcester College is the venue for 'One Earth, One Humanity, One Future', a four day event held by The Resurgence Trust to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Resurgence magazine (Resurgence & Ecologist since 2012), the UK's longest standing green magazine. In preparation for the start of this event the garden team have been busy preparing the gardens and creating plant displays to be placed in the giant marquee and a lecture room.

Careful Manouvering

For the marquee two large containers were planted up and carefully manouvered in to place on the stage.
Container 1: Betula albosinensis 'Kansu' (Chinese Red Barked Birch) under planted with Ceratostigma plumbaginoides (hardy blue-flowered leadwort)
Container 2: 3 x Sorbus 'Joseph Rock' (Mountain Ash) under planted with Anemone japonica 'Serenade'

The Stage Is Set For 'One Earth, One Humanity, One Future'

Nash Building Lecture Room

On the other side of the college gardens, in the lecture room of the Nash Building, two heavy stone troughs were planted up, wheeled over on a pallet truck and then carefully lifted in to place beneath the giant television screens.
Trough 1 and 2: Viburnum tinus 'Spirit', Hosta 'Royal Standard', Dryopteris affinis (Golden Male Fern), Anemone hybrida 'Andrea Atkinson' (Japanese Anemone) and Euonymus fortunei 'Silver Queen'.
The launch event begins tonight in the marquee with an opening speech from James Sainsbury, Chair of The Resurgence Trust and a video message from HRH The Prince of Wales and continues over the next three days .
