Concerns about our health and the environment are at an all-time, leaving many of us feeling overwhelmed and powerless. 

Qualified nutritionist and horticulturist Liz Hutson has been researching the link between health, longevity and gardening for many years. Liz will be doing a talk for us on Tuesday 10th March at 10.30 to show you how you can take simple steps to support the health of you, your family and the planet and why it is so imperative as many of us as possible do so. 

There will also be a free, comprehensive e-book that you can access after the event, with a wealth of useful, practical information and further references. 

Some of the topics covered include:

     · Why plants and gardening are a key part of the lifestyle of some of the longest living people on the planet

     · Benefits to mental and physical health – including many you may not be aware of

     · What plants have the highest nutritional content and how to maximise this when buying or growing these

     · Why good soil health is so critical and advice on how to nurture it 

     · Practical tips if you are short on time, space, money or expertise

     · Using plants to benefit wildlife and help mitigate climate change

     · How plants improve indoor air quality and why this is so vital 

     · How to get these benefits EVEN if you don’t have a garden
