Why become a garden guide?
Felicity Thyer, one of our garden guides, talks about why she is a Garden Guide.
"As a Garden Guide I have really enjoyed visiting people to talk about their gardens and offer suggestions about what they could do to increase wildlife in their garden. We usually conduct the visits in pairs so there are two of us to offer suggestions, answer questions and identify plants. It is lovely hearing people talk about their garden – what they like and what changes they would like to make. It is exciting to hear back from people about the suggestions they have implemented and the changes they have noticed."
