Keeping in touch…… if you would like to be on our mailing list please let us know by dropping us an email at gardenmasterclass@gmail.com…..     

This is worth doing if there is nothing you want to, or are able to get to, on this year’s calendar of events, but would like to be informed of future events. We are also keen to find new venues, particularly in places where other garden classes don’t operate, hear suggestions for speakers, subject matter etc., etc.
