Gardening by the Moon – an insight into sustainable farming with Mark Frith

March 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST

Join us to explore how the 24 seasons of the traditional Chinese lunar or Moon calendar were used since the beginnings of farming.

Gardening by the phases of the Moon is an idea that has been around for as long as humans have been growing their own food. During this one-hour session, Mark Frith, an experienced Horticulture Therapist will describe the journey of the human race from foraging to farming and the impact this has had on our planet. Joining us directly from his allotments, Mark will be able to show and inspire us to adapt to better ways of growing and fertilizing our food organically. At the end of the session, you will be able to ask any questions, no matter whether you are starting off or are somewhat a more experienced gardener already.

About the speaker:

Mark Frith is the founder of Growing Togetherness and delivers bespoke sessions to help communities grow and be more sustainable. He truly believes that taking time to learn something new and rewarding should be an important priority for people in this day and age, especially when highly pressured jobs and lifestyles are having such a negative impact.
