Gardens Talk 2021: Elizabeth Welsh's Garden

Elizabeth Welsh

All alumni and friends are warmly invited to the Girton College Annual Gardens talk on Sunday 26 September at 11am*.

Join Girton College Historian, Dr Hazel Mills, as she discusses the work of Elizabeth Welsh, the sixth Mistress of Girton College and Gardens Steward from 1883 - 1903.  It was under her care and attention that the College grounds began to take the shape that we recognise today. A pre-recorded tour of Miss Welsh’s garden will also be available to watch.
