Abstract: Cicero once said that all we needed was a garden and a library to be self-sufficient. I argue that the garden for learning is a very diverse universe now to accompany the library we now deliver to our students and academic communities. The garden is full of tantalising but also tainted fruits; the demands of working in the garden are very different to that of previous gardeners and that they require different tools to cultivate the plant life. This presentation explores the issues addressed in creating both physical and digital environments and the ways they have been designed to harmonise.
