Our autumn online talks: at one with nature

Yeo Valley Organic Garden

Join us for three fabulous online talks in our new autumn season focusing on the fundamentals of organic and sustainable gardening practices and the exciting biodiversity that can be created in our gardens.

Explore the abundance of biodiversity at Great Dixter with Fergus Garrett; follow the extraordinary journey of planning and design that led to a Gold Medal at RHS Chelsea this year for Sarah Mead and Tom Massey, the inspiration behind the Yeo Valley garden; and delight in the ‘Sheffield School’ style of planting with professors Nigel Dunnett and James Hitchmough.

“We’re delighted to be bringing these three highly topical talks to life this year with some of the leading exponents of sustainability, organic gardening and biodiversity,” says National Garden Scheme Chief Executive, George Plumptre. “Connecting our created garden spaces with nature has never been more critical, and these three talks are guaranteed to inspire many to adopt and explore more sustainable gardening practices.”

The autumn talks are all £10 each (with all proceeds supporting our nursing and health charities):

Great Dixter: biodiversity in abundance – Tuesday 9th November 7.00pm

In at the deep end: a Chelsea garden like no other – Tuesday 23rd November 7.00pm

The Sheffield School approach to sustainable planting – Tuesday 7th December 7.00pm
