Event Details

This walk through Bloomsbury’s green spaces with Sue McCarthy celebrates the life and work of Fanny Wilkinson, the first professional female landscape gardener who began her work here in the 1880s. A champion of tree planting for clean air and responsible for many of London’s parks and green spaces, Fanny was friend of Millicent Garrett Fawcett and her sisters. Fanny was an active suffragist and like the Garrett sisters, carved a route for women to enter the professions ending her career as Principal of the first women’s horticultural college.
