Within the congress, two workshops will be organized in a parallel program:
- Workshop 1 - moderator, landscape architect Kate Gould Garden / England
- Workshop 2 - moderator, Associate Professor Saša Begović B.Sc. / 3LHD / Croatia
Kate's parents encouraged her to garden from an early age. What started as a simple hobby has grown into a successful life career. Kate Gould Gardens was started in 1998 from Kate's bedroom. 23 years old and 5 gold medals from Chelsea later, Kate is one of the most sought after garden designers in London.
But she didn't forget where it all started. With sustainability and care for the environment at the forefront of its design process, it is very likely that you will continue to find it with your hands in the ground, installing the latest excellent planting scheme she has dreamed of. It is this warmth and accessibility that gives her the ability to work together with her clients. This, together with her passion, experience and power of visualization, is a tried and tested combination that gives beautiful results every time.
