Front Quad, Worcester College
Worcester College may not be one of the more famous of the Oxford colleges, but it has what many of the others lack - a really progressive and dynamic gardening team, with large gardens and grounds to work in, and crucially, the support of the college for their work. The gardeners maintain their own blog, under the acronym wocogaga...(see links). When I was an undergraduate the grounds of Worcester were pleasant enough, with their lawns and lake (the regularity with which duck appeared at guest night dinners was attributed to the latter feature), but there was nothing special about the gardening. Last year, however, the garden won a well-deserved Gold medal from the Oxford in Bloom campaign.
