Come and get your fingers green!



Session Brief

Gardens and gardening make us feel better and anyone, anywhere can enjoy their healing power. Gardening helps us to keep fi­t, to enjoy and be part of nature and to revel in colour, aroma, wildlife and beauty. Simply contemplating nature helps to rest and recharge our brains. Under Sue's guidance as she hosts us from her allotment we can cultivate beautiful plants that delight our senses, grow food and even cures for minor ailments in our gardens. This session is wonderfully peaceful to sit outside with a coffee for on a Sunday morning! It truly is amazing how nature can benefit us even through zoom!

 'That first snowdrop, the flowering of the rose you pruned, a lettuce you grew from seed, the robin singing just for you. These are smallthings but all positive, all healing in a way that medicine tries to mimic.'

- Monty Don

Session Details

How Does

It Work?

The group tunes in to Sue (and sometimes a co-host) at her allotment as she goes about her day there. You can also come along and work on your own individual project with Sue's support or just enjoy a brew and have chat while watching her and others. Each week she will explain and guide members through the many different processes involved in allotment life, from seeding to planting to pruning and much more. She will always demonstrate and explain, and give you a chance to ask questions throughout.

What do

I Need?

You will need your laptop or mobile device, your session zoom link, your tools and materials and a pad and pen to make notes if needs be.

What Do

I Do?

This is a fairly informal group where you can choose to sit back and chat/listen and watch Sue as she updates us all on her allotment plants or you can get on with your own projects too. Sue is on hand thorughout if you need help, sharing tips, ideas and information as we go along.


Sue lives in the North West of England and is a History and English teacher and a qualified Reiki practitioner. In her spare time she tends her allotment and grows lots of delicious fruit and vegetables ten months of the year. Sue processes lots of her produce as she loves to cook and bake, and to make her own jams, jellies, curds, conserves and chutneys. Recently Sue has developed a passion for bread-making. Over the past couple of years she has completed two bread baking courses; 'an adventure with flour that was good for my mind, body and soul'. Sue also hosts our Cooking session and truly is brilliant in both that and Gardening assisting our members thoroughly despite not being in the same room!
