See Becky Searle talking all things soil ecology on the We Grow Stage at the Secret Homestead Show Garden on Saturday 17 June.
Becky Searle is an Ecologist, Botanist and Kitchen Gardener best known for combining science with gardening and her passion for soil. She is a garden writer, podcaster and social media personality with over 15 years of gardening experience. Becky has a unique ability to explain why to do things in our gardens rather than just how. She does this in a way that is clear, accessible and lighthearted. Her talks and writing encourage other gardeners to work with nature and create spaces that are sustainable, productive and good for wildlife. Becky believes this can make gardening easier and even more enjoyable.
