Educational Videos on GCCO Website

The Global Conservation Consortium for Oak recently posted a series of short educational videos in English and Spanish introducing some of the large oak collections in the UK and detailing techniques used to propagate oaks by cuttings. They were created by Maricela Rodríguez, GCCO Coordinator for Mexico and Central America, and feature interviews with Greg Watson (Head Gardener) and Edward Heathcoat Amory (owner) of Chevithorne Baron, Devon; Clare Goddard, Director of The Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, Hampshire; and Tom Hudson of Tregrehan Garden, Cornwall. The videos are subtitled in Spanish and can be accessed here.
