Thursday, 7th June 7.00pm – 8.30pm, Porter’s Lodge

Wellington College Head Gardener, Mark Dodd, will take us on a tour of the College gardens and share fascinating insights including some of the delights and challenges of looking after this 440-acre site. Mark is a highly experienced gardener with over 23 years of experience working not only at Wellington but as Head of Gardens at Benenden and Epsom College as well as in Private Estates throughout the country, including Scotland and Devon. In this talk he will provide insight into a side of College life that is unknown to the majority. He will tell us about how his team manages the huge site complete with its lawns, heathland, hedgehogs, squirrels, adders – and all those leaves! There are 18.5 million of them on the Kilometre alone!
