Graham Bell has developed a ‘Forest Garden’ at his home, Garden Cottage, which is in the town of Coldstream in the Borders. In developing the garden he has been guided by permaculture principles, working with nature rather than seeking to alter it with chemicals and over-cultivation of the soil.
The session will begin with a video where Graham takes us on a fascinating walk round the highly productive garden he has developed over the last 30 or so years. He talks about how he has applied his ideas to his gardening practice and the effects that this has had over time. The video lasts half an hour.
There will then be a half-hour session when members of the group can talk directly to Graham and get answers to any questions that they want to raise.
