Talk – Colin Wren ‘An African Adventure’

21st November, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

‘An African Adventure’

Speaker: Colin Wren

A trip around the Drakensberg & Cape Town in December 2022 and including a visit to Mauritius and Reunion islands.
Highlighting some flora and fauna from the tour, including architecture and stories.

Colin trained at RHS Wisley and RBG Edinburgh, with experience working in private and public gardens for over 40 years. He has a keen interest in plants with a special focus on orchids. He currently works for The National Trust for Scotland as Gardens Manager for the East coast gardens.

This season our talks will take place in-person only as we do not have the facility to live-stream them.  Where possible, we will record the talks and the recording will be made available on the members’ page of the website as soon after the talk as possible.

The talks will take place in the Lecture Theatre at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. All talks will begin at 7.30pm. Our talks are free and are open to non-members.  All we ask is that you make a small donation at the door or perhaps buy a raffle ticket if you can.  For those who have not attended a lecture at RBGE before, entry is via the main reception: 20a Inverleith Row, Edinburgh, EH3 5LR (not far from the East Gate).
