Jean Stacey will treat us to some of her plant portraits of marmalade-themed plants and Pam will then run a Marmalade Question Time, answering any questions on any aspects of marmalade. Be in no doubt that Marmalade Matters!
It would be really helpful to have your questions in advance if possible. Please email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also be able to ask questions on the night.

Grow your own happiness, Zoom meeting
Wednesday January 27th 7.15 to 8.30pm – please join online from 7.00pm
Alan Heeks will be running this Zoom workshop on ‘Grow your own happiness’. The workshop will show how gardening methods can be adapted to improve your wellbeing and resilience.
Resilience is the skill of facing challenges and growing through them. A cultivated ecosystem such as a garden is a role model for natural resilience. This workshop shows how gardening methods can help you grow your own happiness. For example:
During the workshop you’ll have a chance to try out some of the techniques Alan describes. Just what we need to take us through dark days of winter and ongoing coronavirus restrictions. For more about Alan and his approach see www.naturalhappiness.net .
- Mulching and pruning to avoid getting rundown
- Composting stress as a source of energy
