About The Event
A morning workshop designed to inspire you to manage your garden for the benefit of nature. How to go fully organic, look after your soil health, encourage wildlife, plant for biodiversity, understand how beneficial predators hibernate in your garden, feed birds with your seed heads and berries. Learn how to create a wildflower patch or mini-meadow, how and when to mow, and how to reduce the use of fossil fuels in your garden. Understand how using woodchip and ground covers cut the need for watering. A nature-friendly garden is also often a low maintenance garden too, leaving you less work to do and more time to enjoy.
The day will start at Helen Browning’s Royal Oak pub with an introduction to the workshop. The session will be a mixture of theory and practice, based in and around the pub and garden. We will enjoy a hearty lunch at the pub where there will be an opportunity to ask further questions.
Tea, coffee and lunch are provided.
