In the morning of the same day and at the same venue Penny is presenting the Master Class – ” Low Environmental Impact Solutions to Garden Pests”. If you book both of these classes you can receive a 10% discount on both classes. You will need to book each class separately but use the “2 class disc – Garlic&Pests” ticket option when booking your tickets.

If you do book both classes, bring a bite of lunch and join Penny and myself (Richard) in a chat about SGA, sustainable gardening and other topics of your choice.
