Catherine has worked in horticulture all her life and has enjoyed all manner of horticultural roles, from crop production to retail sales, nursery and garden work. For the past 22 years she has worked at the Eden Project in a range of horticultural positions and is currently the manager of the rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes.
She will introduce the Eden Project, its values, the diverse plant collection and numerous gardens it contains. The plant collection includes many crop plants, fruits, vegetables and others (which are not always associated with a botanic garden). She will consider sustainable gardening/horticulture and the challenges we face, including climate change.
