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!

**COVID update:  As the Garden House studio is a relatively small space and for the safety of all, we have reduced the number of participants in our workshops.  We would also prefer participants to have had double/triple vaccinations, or to take a Lateral Flow Test before joining the group (we have some available if needed).  Thank you for your understanding.

Do follow us on Instagram @Gardenhouse – each day we post an image from the garden to lift your spirits.
