Apple Picking and Participation

We were joined by a group of Level 2 Diploma Students from The Hereford College of Arts. They came to Berrington to assist Nick Winney, Gardener-in-charge at Berrington Hall, with a series of garden tasks that needed to be completed in the orchard. This proved to be a successful partnership for it is estimated that the work the students did in the garden equated to 25 hours or 3.5 days’ work of staff and volunteers time. This work included heavy lifting, apple picking and collecting windfalls. You can read more about it in the article below.

Look!Look!Look! launch

Today was the day that Heather and Ivan Morison's 'Look!Look!Look!' art commission was launched. To mark it we celebrated with music throughout the day by Eboracum Baroque which resonated the sounds of the eighteenth century. We also were joined by historic gardens expert Kate Felus, who gave a talk with Heather Morison about the Georgians and their gardens and how this inspired the design of 'Look!Look!Look!'. The project is now open daily for you to enjoy inside the walled garden.

Look! Look! Look! starts to take shape

This week saw the beginnings of Look! Look! Look! being installed into the walled garden. With its cobbled flooring and its large canvas panels being put up you can start to get a sense of what it's going to 'Look!' like. Keep on looking out for more images.
