Sally is available to talk on a number of topics from gardening to smallholding. Three of her talks are based on her books: ‘The Healthy Vegetable Garden, ‘The Climate Change Garden’ and ‘Living on one acre or less’. She also speaks on issues such as organic gardens, climate friendly gardening, coping with floods and drought, and peat-free gardening. She aims to inspire and inform her audience, talking for about 45-50 minutes (or longer if required) followed by questions and answers.
Her fee starts at £75 for local talks, with travel costs extra. She is happy to travel further afield.
Sally has spoken at a number of events including the Edible Gardening Show, River Cottage Festival, Royal Welsh Spring Festival as well as gardening and smallholder groups. Sally and Empire Farm featured in Countryfile Spring Diaries in 2018.
Zoom talks – Sally has given a number of Zoom talks. Zoom is proving popular with many societies, especially in winter when a zoom meeting avoids the need to travel. It has allowed Sally to talk to groups much further afield, such as the Aberdeen Botanic Gardens Society, Elvaston Garden Soc and Gloucestershire Organic Gardens.
