Gardening in a Changing Climate by Woking LA21 & RHS Wisley – Free

Climate change is the biggest challenge humanity faces. How we respond will determine the future of generations to come, the sustainability of our environment and our wellness in the present and near-term.

 

Our gardens can help us feel better, to grow our own food, give us joy in so many ways, but our ideas of what a garden should be and what we might grow in it must change in line with our changing climate.

 

British weather has seen some extreme shifts in recent years. Warmer Spring and Autumn seasons, broiling Mediterranean-temperature Summer seasons and increasing water shortages across the UK have produced new challenges for gardeners and growers who need to plan around these changes as has already happened in California, where water-less, minimal-water-needing and recycled-water-fed gardens are becoming the norm.

 

Join Woking Local Action 21 and a panel of experts who include experienced community volunteers and expert gardening advisors from RHS Wisley, in an event supported and funded by Woking Borough Council.

• Get involved in the numerous community garden projects across Surrey or set one up yourself – LA21 can tell you how, some of its projects are global initiatives which depend upon grassroots involvement! Be the change you want to see and take advantage of the chance to tap RHS Wisley experts for their wisdom.

• Green fingers not required, anybody can discover the many benefits that plants can bring.

  • Succulents are not just Pinterest and Instagram-friendly, they can be used in so many creative ways, such as to create water-minimal living walls in interior and exterior settings, something becoming increasingly popular in the corporate world.

• Learn practical, how-to tips to adapt your own garden to the changing climate and keep in touch with our idea-sharing group – follow Greener Woking LA21 on Facebook and Twitter. We’re always happy to hear from you, feel free to comment and share.plantedpots
