“Creating gardens with the future in mind”

Our world is developing and changing so rapidly, the climate is unpredictable and so the work of a garden designer has become very challenging. How do we approach garden design and make sure that our creations are future-proof? How can designers create gardens with the future in mind?

The talk will feature examples of other designer’s work along with Annie’s, to illustrate the new way of thinking and will share an insights on how it can be practically applied in our gardens.

Annie Guilfoyle will run a design workshop the next day after the conference on 27th August.

Dr. Mariusz Antolak (Poland)

Landscape architect, “foodscape” movement at international level

“Fruit Up Your Landscape!”

Have you ever wondered how many of the plants from our gardens are edible? Should they only be found in the kitchen garden? Popular vegetables, herbs, and fruit trees can also be beautifully combined with ornamental plants. Maybe it’s a good time to use a very long list of edible species and plant them in our gardens and public spaces.

Dr. Mariusz Antolak will take you into the world of foodscaping and will introduce how edible plants can be combined with ornamental ones.

Mariusz Antolak will be also holding design workshop the next day after the conference on 27th August.

Panel discussions

Panel discussions on the main stage during the conference:

Discussion “Lithuanian identity: how to find new ideas when you see the same plant combinations in Berlin and Rokiškis

Do we know native or historical plants well enough? Should stones only be used for rock gardens? Do we plan fire only for barbecue? Lets look at our local resources, nature, and history as an inspiration.

Discussion “Ecology as the core of tomorrow’s design – in practice” 

What is the difference between “greenwashing” and sustainable design? We will talk about the principles that have been implemented based on sustainability. Is it recycled materials? Is it shapes or lines? Or is it long-lived plants? Is it bees and butterflies? Or maybe something more? Let’s also discuss those cases where it failed.
