Talks & Events

I’m a fully qualified teacher and horticulturalist with experience of planning and delivering projects, courses, workshops and talks for carers, gardening clubs, community groups, staff wellbeing sessions, adults with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and mental health problems.

My talks, courses and workshops are relaxed and focus on having fun and de-mystifying gardening whether it is ‘Growing Your Own’, Garden Design Basics, Gardening for Wildlife and Plants for Difficult Places or more hands-on creative workshops on Making Terrariums, Broken-Pot Gardens or Christmas Wreaths.

“Thank you so much for the really interesting talk and demonstration, which you gave to us at the Higham Garden Club.  I think we all enjoyed the evening and went home feeling that it would soon be Christmas giving us time to make our Christmas Door Rings.  The best I have ever seen demonstrated as that is how I like them to be – natural foliage.”

Eileen from Higham Garden Club

Keith from Calder Valley Organic Gardeners
