The recent drought and heat waves have taken a heavy toll on plants.

With more weather extremes anticipated, what will be the impacts on our food growing systems?

What can we do to make our gardens and allotments more resilient to climate change? 

This interactive workshop will explore strategies to help adapt to these changing times, with a focus on soil care, water management and plant selection.
