Brownfield Gardening – Transforming blandscapes into landscapes.

Book tickets

2 of the 5 topmost biodiverse sites in the UK are Brownfield sites. Brownfields are now so vital to our invertebrates and birds that they are listed as a priority habitat. Come and find out how the learnings from Brownfields can be reimagined and repurposed into biodiverse garden landscapes.

During a day spent at Church Farm Garden (a former coal canal and railway) we will explore low nutrient soils and substrate use in designing resilient plant communities. We will investigate how human landscapes can benefit wild communities and ecologies. And we will look at how you manage an evolving open mosaic landscape with an eye for ecological as well as aesthetic function.


We will eat a vegetarian lunch. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please let us know when you book your course.
