Interested in Running a Course?

It’s good to learn and it’s even better to learn in beautiful surroundings with knowledgeable professionals who are keen to share their skills.

We are currently developing a program of workshops for the late summer and autumn and are putting out a call for proposals from tutors who would like to offer one off or series of workshops complementary to the ethos of the Walled Garden.

We are looking for tutors who are experts in their field and experienced demonstrators and communicators that will enable participants to progress with their chosen subject, whether it’s drawing, designing a garden or making beautiful bouquets from garden flowers.
