Wildlife Garden
Grow wilder. Reconnect, regenerate and restore your garden for nature.

Our gardens are not isolated, man-made spaces; they are parts of the natural landscape in which they are situated. We need to learn to recognise the different parts of our gardens as habitats and ecosystems which wildlife live in. Cheryl Cummings will take us on a guided tour of her garden and explain the benefits of restoring your garden for nature.

Numbers will be limited due to the size of Cheryl’s garden.

An email will be sent when we are ready to put together the list of attendees. A payment of £3.50 will be required to secure your place.

Accessibility
11 The Gardens, Monmouth NP25 3HF
Pathways in the garden are a mixture of grass and paving and some sections have steps.
There is no parking available at the venue and the lane leading to it, “The Gardens” is narrow with little opportunity to leave your vehicle there.
Please note if approaching from the Hereford Road end, you will see property no. 11b on your left. This is not the venue: continue to follow the lane as it curves to the left and no. 11 will be the next entrance.

Here’s a link to Cheryl’s website which tells you more about her and her garden. https://cherylcummingswildgardenwriting.co.uk/

No Dig Garden
Protect and nurture the soil life – it is the biology that interacts with plant roots and makes plants thrive. The creation of a no dig garden can be extremely rapid if all the resources you need are to hand and plant growth will improve as time goes by and the soil biology improves.

An opportunity to wander around Cherry Taylor’s garden and discover the basics of the no dig garden.

An email will be sent when we are ready to put together a list of attendees. A payment of £3.50 will be required to secure your place.

Accessibility
Old Llangattock Farm, Llangattock Vibon Avel NP25 5NG
The garden is 1.5 acres with a lot of uneven ground, some sloping, woodchip paths and steep steps.
It is recommended that people park at the Montessori school, which is a 5-10 minute walk from the garden (mostly on tarmac road, a little bit on a dirt track). If you are obliged to park on the side of the road, please don’t pull onto the grass verges. See photo (school circled at top, garden circled at bottom).
