A panel discussion & lunch with Dan Pearson OBE, in collaboration with Create Academy

Dan Pearson OBE

Petersham Nurseries & Create Academy are delighted to present Dan Pearson OBE in conversation with Petersham Nurseries Head Gardener, Edward Parkinson, for a unique in-person event hosted by Petersham Nurseries Director of Horticulture, Thomas Broom-Hughes.

Dan and Edward will be discussing themes from Dan’s recent Create Academy course, which speaks to Petersham Nurseries’ ethical approach to the natural world, with a range of topics including sustainability, seasonality and colour.

On arrival at 10.30am, guests can enjoy tea, coffee and light refreshments before an hour ‘in conversation’ talk between Dan and Edward, compered by Thomas. Guests will then be invited to enjoy a four course lunch of dishes based on Petersham Nurseries’ philosophy of slow food, sourced responsibly and cooked simply to allow the ingredients to shine through. Following lunch, Edward will lead a tour of the private gardens, allowing guests to experience their varied delights, from ornately sculpted topiary to the magnificent double borders in their full summer pomp. The cutting gardens and vegetable beds will also be brimming with colour and seasonal produce.
