Conferences looking to history and to the future

OSGF hosts invite-only workshops on a variety of topics relating to our mission. Garden and landscape historians gathered to discuss the life and work of John Bradby Blake, an obscure but significant figure whose work is represented in the Oak Spring Garden Library. Scholars from the Crop Trust and the Millennium Seed Bank also convened at Oak Spring to discuss building sustainable bridges between agriculture and conservation.

Wiki Edit-a-thons

Planning is underway for OSGF to host a number of Wikipedia Edit-a-thons to improve public access to Oak Spring's unique collection of rare books and manuscripts. Utilizing information from our Library, participants will update and expand Wiki articles on influential leaders working in plant-related study and practice, including artists, biologists and writers. Check back here for more information on participant guidelines and the selection process!
