Sorry this event has been cancelled

Aldetha teaches horticulture and small holding courses from her Little Foxes Farm. At Bristol University’s Botanical Gardens she teaches biological sciences and is a full time lecturer in horticulture at Lackham College. Aldetha’s passions
are plant propagation, garden design and plant establishment/maintenance. 
She has appeared on radio and TV.

Aldetha writes:-
"There is nothing more amazing than growing vegetables at home,
pulling carrots, growing the perfect cauliflower and chilli peppers. 
Experiencing the taste, the pride and the wonderment of nature; 
developing the patience and therapeutic skills of the gardener.

Not every aspiring gardener has an allotment or a vegetable plot
to match the likes of Monty Don,
but you will be amazed by what can be grown
in just a modest garden, window box or allotment plot.

Within this talk I hope to inspire you
to bring out your forks, spades and gardening gloves 
but I don’t want the fun to stop there............
After growing the next set of tools you will need are in the kitchen 
to get the best out of your home-grown ingredients."

"Plot to pot is just the start of a relationship
 with the soil and your taste buds."

Date: Mon 7th May 2018 at 7pm
