Gardening lectures and talks

The Living Jigsaw – how to garden with wildlife in mind with Val Bourne

Ref: SGT07842

Suitable for all



Val will be talking about the content of her book, The Living Jigsaw, which explores gardening without using chemicals, as Val believes passionately that it's quite possible to have a beautiful flower-packed garden and help wildlife. Based on her own garden, Spring Cottage, Val's talk offers a unique insight into how natural gardens work and with much of wildlife in a terrifying decline, how gardeners can begin to nurture the planet beyond their own garden wall.
