27th and 28th June 2015

1 – 17 Boakes Drive, Stonehouse, GL10 3QW


An interesting garden with trees, chickens, flowform water feature, planting in layers, vegetables and edible weeds mingled with wildlife-friendly ornamentals. Here plants are required to have a purpose – whether eaten by humans or wildlife, or to encourage pollinating insects.

An additional project for this year is making a permaculture-style wicking raised bed, with a gravel base, all enclosed in polythene. 

Talk to me about

  • ∗Using nettles in soup and tea, as a fertiliser, in string

There will be a TASTER SESSION in this garden – Saturday 27th at 2.00pm
