It's Simple to be Sustainable Online Talk. Friday 5th March 10.30am
The Millbrook Growers: Online talks to help you grow your gardening knowledge!
Creating a sustainable garden is increasingly important. What we do in our garden impacts on environmental issues such as our air quality, the survival of wildlife and the quality of our food and soil.
If you would like to make 2021 the year you decide to reduce your gardening carbon footprint - and become a better gardener at the same time - you won’t want to miss this online talk. On Friday 5th March at 10.30am, horticultural expert and RHS lecturer, Caroline Halfpenny, will be hosting an hour-long talk (via Zoom) on sustainable gardening.
With over 30 years of working in the horticultural industry, Caroline will discuss the changing climate and the impact of gardeners on the environment. Caroline will explain that getting the 'natural balance' right in the garden (by encouraging natural predators) is as easy as providing a suitable ecosystem - food, water and shelter - it's simple to be sustainable and have a garden that keeps giving in future years. The Why and How to begin taking a sustainable approach to gardening with a focus on beneficial birds, insects and small mammals.
