109Shaping the Future of Plants For A Future
- Feb 28, 2002Plants For A Future will be holding a two day workshop on the
6th/7th of April entitled
"Shaping the Future of Plants For A Future"
which will be held at our Blagdon Cross Site in North Devon.
The workshop is intended to bring together all those interested
in helping Plants For A Future in the next stage of its development
as we start our educational program in Woodland Gardening,
Vegan-Organic horticulture, the use of perennial plants and
a sustainable way of life.
The workshop will feature a talk by Ken Fern, a site tour by
Jim Retallack and a discussion about our future plans where input is
most welcome. Hopefully there will also be evening entertainment
and there will also be space for others to hold their own sessions.

coming year. Plans are still being finalized but some of the events
