THE COUNTY GARDENS TRUST FORUM
 
The Gardens Trust has just launched a brand new online discussion group: the County Gardens Trust Forum. This is intended as an easy-to-use platform for CGTs to share ideas, experiences, questions and problems and to network with other CGTs. It takes seconds to register and there are clear and simple instructions on how to read and comment on posts. Follow the link on the home page of the Gardens Trust’s website (see LINKS above). Please note that the new Forum will replace the Historic Landscape Project’s email discussion group, LeapTheHaha, which will be closed down in due course.
