Tuition & Workshops

Janice offers workshops for people new to gardening to help them get started and develop their knowledge and skills.

 

She also offers willow weaving sessions, including obelisks, border edging and bird feeders.

All workshops are held in our garden in the beautiful village of Sawdon. They include some theory and discussion, but also plenty of practical/hands-on time out in the garden with opportunities to ask questions.

To comply with Covid requirements, Janice has developed a covered outdoor area for workshops. For winter, she will run workshops using local village halls. Groups will  be no more than five, to allow suitable social distancing.
