27th and 28th June 2015

11 – 2, Crowcumpill Cottage, Gloucester Road, Standish GL10 3BS



A peaceful permaculture garden made from an old paddock in a frost pocket with: rainwater harvesting; a recycled greenhouse; wildlife meadow; pond; forest garden; fruit trees and much more. I use various strategies to outwit the animals that come in from nearby fields such as old fridges for storing fruit and veg. I have 14 raised beds made from recycled plastic (several of the wooden beds rotted after the floods in 2007). I practise no-dig gardening which I consider best for the soil and everything that lives and grows in it.


Talk to me about

  • No-dig organic gardening
  • Raised beds
  • Permaculture
  • Gardening with nature
  • The importance of soil



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