Tracy attended our recent forum at Croome Court, this covering letter explains what she needs. . . .
I am currently in the final year of my BSc in Land Management at Moulton College in Northamptonshire. My background is horticulture and garden design and my particular interests are garden history and walled kitchen gardens.
As part of my course I am carrying out an independent study looking at the current status of walled kitchen gardens in the UK. I will also be investigating the funding streams that are available for their redevelopment, restoration or re-creation and evaluating the experiences of custodians in securing the future of a vital part of our national heritage.
The following objectives are proposed in order to achieve the over all aims set out above:
- Examine all accessible data and appraise the importance of a national register
- Explore statistics to determine a benefit of ranking levels of risk
- Investigate external funding streams that offer financial support to walled kitchen gardens
Your contribution to my research through the completion of this short questionnaire will be invaluable and I very much appreciate you taking the time to give me an honest and personal opinion.
Any queries you may have should be answered in the introduction section of the questionnaire. You will also find contact details in this section for myself and the Senior Lecturer leading the course should you wish to discuss any part of this study.
Thank you in anticipation
