No Dig Gardening – with Russell Attwood – Morning only

April 15 @ 10:15 am - 12:30 pm

No Dig Gardening

The way forward in sustainable gardening. A presentation on how to garden without digging. No-dig is not no effort, but when practised this way there is no need to water and much less weeding so is very worthwhile. No-dig also conserves the soil and increases its store of carbon, helping reduce climate change.

Russell has been a keen gardener for nearly 50 years. His academic background is crop science and he recently retired from being a school teacher. He taught Biology for 39 years and enjoyed singing to his classes about pumpkins. Russell tends his allotment in the Midlands where he grows all of the usual fruit and vegetables. He is (in)famous for growing lots of pumpkins and squashes and regularly gives talks to gardening clubs about them and no-dig gardening.

Arrive at 10.15 am for 10.30 am start. Complimentary refreshments will be provided. The talk will finish at 12.30pm. £30 (30 places).

Refund policy: Refunds up to 30 days before event (all refunds are subject to a £10.00 administration fee).

Non-refundable Eventbrite booking fee.
