JULIA CORDEN – "EXPEDITIONS TO BHUTAN AND ARUNACHAL PRADESH"

This is not Julia’s first time in New Zealand. She trained at the Edinburgh Botanical Gardens, achieving her diploma in horticulture. Then, following work here in New Zealand’s South Island, plant-hunting travels through Hawaii, Delhi and Bangkok, and restoration work on an East Sussex estate, she returned to Scotland. There, Julia manages the award-winning six-acre woodland Explorers Garden in Pitlochry, Scotland. One of its main attractions is the Blue Poppy Collection. Julia also volunteers with The Scottish Rock Garden Club. She has led four trips to Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh in the footsteps of George Sheriff, the Scottish plant collector.

 International speaker door charge: $5
