The Climate Change Garden

As our usual members’ meetings are not taking place due to Covid-19 restrictions we decided to make use of, for the first time, the Zoom videoconferencing platform which is proving to be a vital communication channel for increasing numbers of people.

On Thursday July 30th the guest presentation covered the increasingly important subject of climate change which is close to the hearts of allotmenteers. In 2020 we’ve experienced many extremes of weather, from the wettest February on record, to the warmest spring; then autumn-like weather most recently and the hottest day of the year.

The presenter, Kim Stoddart, is a gardening journalist and editor of The Organic Way magazine and also runs gardening courses through her social enterprise Green Rocket.

You can find an outline of the presentation and solutions on our website by clicking here.
