Informative & inspirational events, talks, courses & workshops

The Garden House is a place of energy and inspiration that encourages sustainable living, and where people can learn about horticulture, share information and be creative!

Over the past year we have continued to teach on-line, through Zoom, which has kept us in contact with many garden enthusiasts, but we have missed face-to-face teaching very much.  One advantage however has been reaching those far and wide who can’t come to the Garden House in person – a rather wonderful silver lining!

Sadly our travel plans were put on hold, as were many events and workshops, but we are now busy reinstating our programme lining up new workshops and courses once the restrictions allow.  Do follow us on Instagram @Gardenhouse – each day we’re posting an image from the garden to lift your spirits.
