Garden Speaking, Gardening Talks and Classes 2013

Whilst my early working days did include teaching horticulture, the last years have seen that skill recalled, with a mild bit of a twist. The talker of gardens that I am, alongside Niall O’Keeffe I host The SodShow, Ireland’s only Garden Radio Show on 103.2 Dublin City Fm. In October 2012 it was awarded Irelands Best Podcast.

From a horticultural talking public perspective, 2012 saw me speaking at everything from music festivals and one-off public gardening demonstrations, to private gardening classes and demonstrations and talks to Gardening and Horticultural societies.

Bookings and inquiries are now being taken for 2013.

Fingal Libraries/ Peter Donegan Schools Gardening Classes

fingal libraries gardening

Fingal Libraries in conjunction with gardener Peter Donegan are hosting a series of classes with primary school children to teach them the real facts of nature. The sessions will cover topics such as gardening, water, the great outdoors, how plants make their own food and how we grow ours, fruit and vegetables, trees and flowers, making a living edible garden and staying green at home.

These classes will give the children the opportunity to get their hands dirty and do some planting themselves and at the same time have fun while exploring the natural world and biodiversity.

The garden classes entitled, Adventures in Green Gardening, start Tuesday 16th October and will run for 6 weeks.

A list of books has been compiled by Peter Donegan and Fingal Libraries for the children to read themselves and also a list of more detailed books for parents. All of the books noted are available from Fingal Libraries.
