The international event for 2019 will take place in Portugal, in April. Mediterranean Gardening Association Portugal extends a warm invitation to all members of Mediterranean Gardening International partner associations to join them for the conference, entitled ‘Bringing the Mediterranean Landscape into your Garden’.
The event will start with a pre-conference tour in the Algarve from 1 – 4 April, followed by the main event based in the university city of Évora from Friday 5th to Monday 8th April. Keynote speakers will be Olivier Filippi, author of several authoritative books on gardening in a Mediterranean climate, and James Basson, Chelsea gold medal-winning garden designer, based in the south of France.
A programme of visits to private gardens, vineyards, historic gardens and wildflower walks in the Algarve and the Alentejo has being developed, details of which can be found here:
|1 – 4 April||Pre-conference tour in the Algarve|
|6 – 7 April||Main programme in Évora|
|5 – 8 April||Optional visit to gardens of the Alentejo|
The MGAP committee hope that this will be an opportunity for people to enjoy the beautiful gardens of Portugal and to meet and socialise with fellow Mediterranean gardeners from around the world.
