On 28 November 2013, the RBGE hosted a public closing event for the Walking With Poets project – a special collaboration with the Scottish Poetry Library. The project, funded by Creative Scotland, involved four poets spending a month in residence at one of the RBGE’s four Gardens. Their events programmes and thoughts can be found at www.walkingwithpoets.com.

You can hear the four poets (Mandy Haggith, Gerry Loose, Jean Atkin and Sue Butler) in conversation with the Scottish Poetry Library’s Jennifer Williams by clicking on

We were delighted to host such a fantastic project and hope to work with the Scottish Poetry Library again soon to help lend more voices to nature and our Gardens.
