Event Information

Guild member Stephanie Hafferty reports: ‘We have a few slots left for our press open day event at Homeacres, Charles Dowding's well known no-dig market garden. Charles is the leading expert in no-dig gardening, cropping 1/4 acre of beds biointensively. It really is extraordinary how much food is produced in a relatively small area. for more info about his work.

‘There are two sessions, morning and afternoon and strictly by ticket only, to ensure we can maintain social distancing. It is a free event. If you would like to attend, please contact Emma Mason:

‘I will be there too, guarding the (free!) cakes, courtesy of local restaurant At The Chapel, which is an excellent place to eat in nearby Bruton.

The Newt in Somerset, a few minutes' drive from Homeacres, has offered attendees free admission to their famous gardens (usually £20) where there is a restaurant and outdoor eating area too. The farm shop there is splendid. Not only do they sell both my books they also have a superb range of their own and locally sourced produce. So you can make a bit of a day out.

‘Homeacres garden is beautiful – for more info about the garden on Instagram and on YouTube.’
