Garden Press Event 2016


We enjoyed a busy day the Garden Press Event at Barbican Exhibition Centre in London on Thursday 18 February. We were at the event with our client Perennial, the charity for all UK horticulturists. We spoke to plenty of journalists interested in the charity’s work, with some interest from a certain gardening weekly in one of the main Perennial fundraising events this year! Fingers crossed we can convert their interest into definite sign ups.

It was great to catch up with media contacts old and new, put some faces to some social media names, and speak to other charities in the horticulture sector, Thrive and Greenfingers. Thrive offers therapeutic horticultural projects and courses for disabled and disadvantaged people and Greenfingers funds and builds gardens at children’s hospices for families and staff working with children to use and enjoy. Both work across the UK and both complement the work of Perennial beautifully. We look forward to being able to collaborate with them a bit more closely over the coming months.

We have written up the news and posted the press pack we produced for the event on the Perennial website here.
