Event Details

Gardening the Neighbourhood

This session will explore the connection between horticulture and local neighbourhood. How can our garden environment and learning experiences connect with our locality ? Can we design our services to model connection and even develop a harvest exchange?  How can we participate in the restoration of land currently underutilised in services and nearby? You will be inspired to explore the potential of building horticultural connections in your local community and will be provided with the tools to get started.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain an understanding of neighbourhood horticulture connection
  • Learn how to develop a community produce exchange.
  • Find out about community horticulture groups and other resources.

Facilitator:  Jenn Reed

Deeply embedded in the power of our natural environment to nourish health and wellbeing, Jenn’s approach is grounded in 20 years experience in early years education. She has qualifications in both sustainable landscape design and children’s services. Her passion is crafting outdoor spaces that help people connect with nature, each other and themselves. When not designing gardens and play spaces, you may find Jenn perusing farmers markets in search of local produce or indeed in her own garden.
