Mr David Mitchell, Chair of Scotland’s Gardens

After thirty years at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, mostly as a curator, David recently retired to become an Honorary Research Associate at the RBGE. A Fellow of the Charted Institute of Horticulture and the Royal Geographical Society, he is respected lecturer and tour leader leading groups for travel companies and Ivy League Universities around the globe. This is in addition to his long career as broadcaster with the BBC, STV, Channel Four and Radio Scotland.

Scotland’s Gardens was created in 1931 in order to facilitate the opening of private gardens to the public as a means of raising money to support the training and pensions of the Queen’s Nurses, generally known as District Nurses. Today Scotland’s Gardens continues to facilitate the opening of gardens throughout Scotland with private gardens, not usually open to the public, still of paramount importance. Join David in February where he will deliver his talk ‘Gardening is the Glue’.
