Raised vegetable beds, cabbages Climate change, peak oil and extreme weather conditions are the concerns of many people nowadays, who would also like to lower their carbon footprint and spend their money more ethically.

Jill can help you in designing your garden to play a more positive role by maximising bio-diversity, using local or recycled garden materials and by creating fruit and vegetable gardens to lower your food miles and increase your garden’s productivity.

Serious scientific composting

Organic gardens have been a way of life for Jill, who from the age of five was taught gardening by her grandparents. Chemicals were never used, there was always a compost bin in a shady corner and foraging for raspberries was a welcome break from tilling the vegetable patch.

The Centre, amongst many other exhibits, has examples of green roofs, reed beds, sustainable urban drainage and solar-powered water features.
