Of course they are! Except when you are weeding.

 ...or when you are slug and snail hunting - then they're a fearful battlefield........ :-X

Edinburgh Public Gardens and Squares Conference 2014
26th September 2014

The Scottish Enlightenment is manifested in the Gardens and Squares of Edinburgh’s New Town. Edinburgh’s historic gardens and squares are a result of the development of the city following late 18th century ideals of town planning, and form an important and integral part of the Edinburgh World Heritage Site.

The aim of the conference is to explain their significance, to celebrate them and to demonstrate how they can be maximised for the benefit of the social, economic and cultural life of the city in the 21st century.

The first two sessions in the morning will set the scene, describing the history, philosophy and development of the spaces within the city. The afternoon session will discuss the practical aspects of managing these spaces. A Reception in the banking hall of Royal Bank of Scotland, St Andrews Square, will conclude the day.

The conference was conceived by the Garden History Society in Scotland and organised by Historic Scotland in association with other partner organisations (EWHT/Cockburn/AHSS/BEFS).
