Susie White – Second Nature

A Pre-Festival Event

Chaired by Linda France

Tickets £10.50/£8.50


Discover the transformative power – for you and for wildlife – of building an outdoor sanctuary for all species to thrive in and enjoy.

Tucked into an unspoiled corner of Northumberland lies a naturalist’s garden, developed from scratch by award-winning gardener and author Susie White, her husband and friends. This is the story of how they created a remarkable oasis teaming with insects, birds and animals – a place that is as alive as it is beautiful. In Second Nature Susie takes us through the planning and construction, and describes how she designed the garden to blend harmoniously with her natural environment.

HBF Friends: Enjoy a complimentary drink at this event.
