Join poet-in-residence Mandy Haggith for a ceremonial closing walk including poems representing each of the 18 trees in the Gaelic Tree Alphabet.

For 18 days in July, Mandy will be following the Gaelic Tree Alphabet and celebrating a tree each day with visitors to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and visitors to www.walkingwithpoets.com. Today's tree is Yew - the last tree in the alphabet.

Part of the Walking With Poets project in collaboration with the Scottish Poetry Library. This project has been made possible thanks to Year of Natural Scotland funding from Creative Scotland, and additional support from the Big Give and Cove Park.
