Talk and Demos

As well as the things we do on site we also deliver talks and demonstrations off site, for example to garden clubs, WI’s care homes etc.
The talks are delivered by Jane and Dave Newman. Some are delivered by one of us and some by us both. We are both experienced horticulturalists and teachers and Jane is also an experienced florist and flower arranger.
The topics we cover include:
• Food growing, including on a small scale and using environmentally friendly gardening methods.
• The history of gardens across various periods
• Seasonal jobs to do in the garden
• Growing and arranging flowers from the garden matched to the time of year, including a demonstration by Jane.
• Talks about various groups of plants including herbs, climbers etc.
• The Herb experience and table-top activities for Care home residents and other groups.

If you would like to book a talk please contact us to discuss topics, prices and availability.

Our fees vary according to the funding we have available, and materials required.
We are able to travel about 15 miles from Lincoln to your venue but can also deliver the talks to small groups at our Friendly Garden at The Lodge, Eagle Hall, LN6 9HZ
We aim to make contact about 7 days before the event to check everything is OK and answer any other questions.
We aim to arrive 30 minutes before the start of the meeting to allow time to set up.
