Workshop Description

Changing how we garden means we can continue enjoy all the health and environmental benefits of a garden as we age or our physical circumstances change.

Why is that when we finally have time to work on our gardens, our bodies tell us to slow down or our physical circumstances change.  Changing a gardens’ design and some of our gardening practices means we can continue to enjoy all the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits from a garden even as our own capability changes.

  • Garden design for active ageing
