The Gardeners' House

by Barbara Santi and The Hypatia Trust
Completed 2018

The Morrab Botanical Gardens are a sub-tropical garden in the heart of Penzance and home to the rare and remarkable Morrab Library.  Nestled in the grounds sits a partially-derelict, former stables building... 

The Hypatia Trust is working together with The Friends of Morrab Gardens and the Pengarth Day Centre to revitalise the old stables that will become The Gardeners' House - a new learning centre for botanical and horticultural projects, a natural history reading room, lecture hall, open-air laboratory for ‘citizen science’ and communal activity spaces.

This short promotional film tells its story.
