I am a garden designer and had been running workshops on an ad-hoc basis. But I liked it so much I now do them regularly and also because living in the countryside can be a tad isolating – I thought it would be a good way of meeting new people.
I Also have amazing tutors who teach here with me. Check out calendar of courses we run: from bee keeping to chicken keeping, topiary, wildlife gardening perfume-making, photography, rag rug making, weaving & dyeing, preserving & jam making.
