Title The Garden of Cosmic Speculation
Abstract CGT member Alison Moller will explore the background, influences and meaning of The Garden of Cosmic Speculation, near Dumfries in southern Scotland. This important 20th/21st century garden was laid out in a 30-acre landscape by Charles Jencks. The garden, inspired by modern cosmology, is private and open to the public for only one day a year, but Alison was given rare access to explore it with her husband who took the photographs that illustrate this talk.

She is a member of Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex Gardens Trusts, for whom she has been running an Introduction to Garden History course over the past two years, under the GT umbrella. If that wasn’t enough, Alison is a professional Wine Educator, in which role she arranged the champagne reception at Fenstanton Church Centre in 2016 as part of the CGT Brown Tercentenary celebrations.
