Which sites are priorities for research?
Choose your site and start adding to our body of knowledge: on-going support and guidance will be available and you are free to choose which garden/s you research and how much time you commit.
Whether you are an experienced researcher, have attended a course and would like to put theory into practice, or would like to learn how to research a garden's history for the first time this is the group for you.
There will be an optional guided tour of Brent Archives at 14.15.
This initiative is timed to support Brent Borough of Culture 2020
