Garden Masterclass. Regenerative Landscapes

Book tickets

During a day spent in her ‘brownfield’ garden, containing an abandoned railway line and coal canal, Jo will discuss how her landscape garden was conceived and is managed.

Making an asset of the low nutrient substrate left on site a with challenging topography Jo has increased the diversity of plant life, integrating existing wildlife corridors. The art of gardening becomes less orthodox; returning to the craft of land management and also experimenting with new understandings about soil ecologies and the changing climate.

Water ecologist Jason Mitchell will focus on Jo’s pond and overall project as a case study, with some references to other restoration projects and the cross over between aquatic ecology and the aesthetics of water garden design, along with practical applications to include: biological filtration, general construction considerations and the ongoing evolution of the water body.
