Nutritionist and horticulturist, Liz Hutson will host a Growing for Health talk at Castle Gardens on Wednesday 11 March from 2:30pm. Having researched the link between health and gardening for many years, Liz will share a variety of vital steps that can be taken at home, no matter the size of the outdoor space, to not only improve health and wellbeing but also combat the plight of the planet.

With a look at the extensive and often unappreciated physical and mental benefits of gardening, the importance of nurturing soil and the range of nutrient-rich plants that can have a positive impact on people and wildlife, this afternoon session will offer practical solutions to gardeners of all levels of expertise, helping them to tackle the ever present issues surrounding sustainability and wellbeing.

Tickets cost £5 per person, which includes a comprehensive and practical e-book, and can be purchased at Castle Gardens. All of the proceeds will go to Greenfingers Charity, which supports children who spend time in hospices.
