REEP Scholars work in the Tudor Garden at Cressing Temple
On Monday and Tuesday our three intercultural scholars, Inés Parias-Cervera (Spain), Nezha Kejaat (Morocco) and Rhiannon Matravers (England) spent two days working in the recreated Tudor Gardens at Cressing Temple in Essex. Here they learned a range of traditional skills and crafts including weaving willow fences, pruning topiary box, trimming box hedges and pruning grape vines. They also discovered all about the use of plants in Tudor England for food, medicine, dyes, strewing and other utilitarian purposes.
