There is still room in my next garden workshop. Come one, come all!

And if you know someone who might be interested, please do me the favour of forwarding this to them. Thank you.

Laughter, camaraderie and insight guaranteed.

    Beth, I want to be there! If there's room, please keep a place for me. I'm care-taking a friend's farm(lucky moi!)hence no email of my own, and will confirm officially when I'm back on Friday, August 13th(ominous?).
