Our Sustainability seminar Speakers
Speaker – Jane Bingham – The Cheshire Gardener
Gardens are the life blood of our world – from happy homes for hedgehogs to protective pastures and planting for our bees, our gardens are a beautiful example of give to gain and win win outcomes.
Jane will speak about how the Garden Design industry is one of the first to join together to formulate overarching sustainability strategies: garden designers, landscape architects, landscapers and horticulturists are joining forces to devise a carbon calculator tool to measure the carbon impact of different materials and plants. The tool will help the designer make the right materials choices to make each project as carbon neutral as possible with carbon sequestration as the goal if possible.
Speaker – Lisa Barnes – Emmie B interiors,
Lisa will bring a candy shop type experience and demonstrate the sustainable ranges and approaches for interior designers. Spotlighting in particular her collaboration with the Romo Group, Lisa will highlight how anyone can put sustainability at the forefront their design process, which is exactly what Lisa and her team do wherever we can. Lisa will give you a positive insight as to how much we can help with our environment without compromising on quality and design.
