Local author Gerry Maguire Thompson is giving a talk for the Shoreham Society about his book, Rewilding an Urban Garden: An Illustrated Diary of Nature’s Year. This tells the story of twelve months in his Shoreham garden, and the extraordinary wealth of creatures that live or visit there. The book is beautifully designed and illustrated throughout with woodcut style drawings, and has attracted wide appreciation from leading figures in the world of nature and conservation, including His Majesty King Charles.
The talk is on Friday 20 October at the Shoreham Centre at 7pm. Gerry will read extracts, talk about the profound benefits gained from the experience, and answer questions about wild gardening.
You will discover how creating your own wild garden can bring great benefits to yourself, to local wildlife and to the wider urban environment. An evening not to be missed with a very engaging speaker and popular author.
A signed copy of the book might make a nice gift for a friend or family member who is passionate about gardening or wildlife.
More information about the book and the garden can be found at urbanwildgarden.com.
Don’t just take our word for it, award-winning nature writer Neil Ansell has this to say of Gerry’s book: “Lovely book….utterly charming, and infectious in its enthusiasm. An inspiration to those seeking to connect more closely with the wildlife on their doorstep. I really enjoyed it, and liked the quirky humour.”
Come along and find out for yourself on Friday 20 October at 7pm in the Shoreham Centre.
