Meet Oliver Haden

Having gardened both professionally and personally for over 40 years, Oli will be starting your journey into organic gardening. From understanding the potential of your site to the practical steps you might take to see it actually take shape and all the challenges you might encounter on the way.

Working with nature and ever mindful of the impact we gardeners can have on the environment, join this workshop and get the chance to look at your own site through the eyes of a professional.
