TitleGardening, Landscape Design and Local Distinctiveness
DescriptionThe Gardening, Landscape Design and Local Distinctiveness project grew out of Common Ground's Campaign for Local Distinctiveness, and ran for approximately five years between 1992 and 1997. The aim was to promote a style of gardening that was sensitive to the distinctive qualities of the given place, for example its soil type, native species, local architecture, and history. In 1995, Common Ground published a pamphlet entitled 'The Art of Gentle Gardening: Thoughts on Linking Plants, People and Places' to share 'ideas on how we can link plants, people and place, reweaving culture and nature to make a difference'. People at Common Ground who worked on this project include Sue Clifford and Angela King.

Material in this section of the archive includes: correspondence; reports; papers relating to the publication of 'The Art of Gentle Gardening: Thoughts on Linking Plants, People and Places' pamphlet; papers relating to talks and conferences; press releases, press clippings and papers relating to publicity; notes and research material.
