First ERHG General Assembly as a certificated Cultural Route of the Council of Europe
The European Route of the Historic Gardens has held its General Assembly on April 29.
The virtual meeting was the first that the Association has held after its certification as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe and, therefore, the most important issue to vote on was the accession of new members.
All members voted unanimously for the accession of five full members: the Foundation for the Protection of Heritage of Klodzko County , in Poland, with two gardens (Sarny Castle and Kamieniec Palace); Mainau GmbH in Germany; Municipal Park of Naoussa in Greece and Fundaçao Jardim Jose Do Canto and Fundaçao Serralves in Portugal.
The Association European Route of Historic Garden also approved the membership of ACRE, the Spanish Association of Restorers and Conservators of Cultural Heritage, as a new member. So far, the ERHG has six members and three collaborating professionals.
At the General Assembly it was also announced that the IV Annual Forum of the ERHG will be held in Hannover at the Herrenhausen Gardens from 3 to 5 September.
All members are very satisfied with the development of the events. The interest in historic gardens is growing, as evidenced by the fact that more gardens are interested in joining the association and initiating partnerships for knowledge sharing and joint activities.
The next meeting will take place in Hannover and will hopefully not be virtual, but face-to-face.
