Upcoming talks and other news

A round up of the no dig gardening talks I’m giving at shows and events August, September and October 2022.

Travelling to gardening events is an absolute joy. I so enjoy hosting no dig talks, meeting lots of gardeners and hopefully inspiring people to grow their own using affordable, sustainable no dig methods.

These are all talks and events which are open to the public. I also give talks to private groups and organisations.

To discuss booking me for your event, please contact me.

Wisley has a superb no dig garden run by the amazing Sheila Das. If you can’t make it to the show it is well worth visiting the gardens at Wisley to see this incredible achievement.

      I do if I am booked 🙂 Have recently got back from giving talks and a supper club in Ireland

      1. Hi, do you mind saying where you were in Ireland? I am seriously considering moving there with my partner, but finding it really difficult to find permaculturists to connect with. Thanks fir everything you do 💚

        I was at Carlow Festival. It wasn’t a permaculture festival though, not sure how many permaculture people live in that area.

  1. Sounds like a lot of exciting adventures and plans. Fiona and I will no doubt be meeting you at your place to see your lovely set up. Love those yellow sumer squash, ourgettes and marrows. Beautiful!
