Tour of Charles Dowding Garden
I have had the enormous pleasure of visiting the famous English gardener and youtube sensation, Charles Dowding.
Together with his partner, the talented gardener and award-winning author and blogger, Steph Hafferty we walked and talked for ages sharing our passion for gardening and particularly discussing the no dig garden method. Thankfully Evan, my husband, was there too with the camera.
Charles and Steph are so generous with their insights – sharing as we tour around Homeacres – Charles’ bio-intensive, garden near Shepton Mallet in Somerset. Grab a cuppa and a notebook, this hour long film is full of valuable advice when creating your own no dig garden, enjoy.
Steph and Charles have co-authored the award-winning book, ‘No dig Organic Home and Garden: Grow, Cook, Use & Store your Harvest.‘ published by the permaculture publishing house, Permanent Publications.
Charles has written more than nine books on no dig and organic gardening. He writes for national and international magazines and runs a hugely popular YouTube channel. He also appears on TV and radio including BBC Gardeners World, and teaches extensively at home and abroad.
Steph Hafferty is a kitchen gardener who uses permaculture, no dig and organic methods. She is a plant-based cook, award winning author and blogger, food and gardening writer, small scale homesteader and mum of three. Her more recent book is The Creative Kitchen. Steph shared an amazing meal at the end of this walk-about which we all enjoyed so much we forgot to film – sorry, it was incredible!!
