Trellis gardening charity announces Jim McColl conference masterclass

Beechgrove gardener Jim McColl is the star at the forthcoming Trellis conference

The eighth annual Trellis conference will be held at Perth Concert Hall on 18 March.

The title of the therapeutic gardening charity's event is 'People Grow Better in Gardens' and organisers say delegates will be able to "find out how adaptable and effective gardening can be in supporting the health and well-being of the Scottish population".

TV gardener Jim McColl will give a masterclass on tools maintenance and restoration.

The conference brings together more than 90 delegates and will showcase gardening projects in the Trellis network from across Scotland.

These include Horner’s Plot in Perth, which is working with people experiencing mental health issues; The Garden Project at NHS Fife, which is working on specialist forensic occupational therapy; and Watch Us Grow in Cumbernauld, which is a gardening and children’s equipment refurbishing social enterprise working with adults with learning disabilities.

This year’s discussion forum ‘Issues Projects Encounter’ offers a chance to solve problems through sharing delegates’ collective experience.
