At this workshop we will discuss planning your garden; alternatives to synthetic fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides; managing weeds; choosing plants (particularly food plants); how to make best use of mulch … and anything else you ask for that we have time for.

Presenters: Meredith Freeman and others
