What to expect? 

During the drop-in sessions you can speak with our experienced gardeners and ask any gardening related questions you might have. Each session will have a different planned activity which will depend on the season. You can come along to as few or as many gardening drop in sessions as you wish.  The sessions are a great way to improve your gardening skills and to get to know new people who also have an interest in growing and gardening. 


How to book?

You can pop in to any of the gardening sessions listed above - you don’t need to book in advance. Please note that some activities are weather permitting, so we may need to change our plans last minute. If you have any questions about the gardening drop in sessions, please contact Georgiana, our Gardener-in residence, on 07425625998 or e-mail [email protected]
