National Allotment Society - Talks on Zoom
© Hotwells & District Allotments Ltd 2007-2021
As autumn draws in and it gets dark much earlier, your Committee is delighted to bring you two more talks from excellent speakers.
On Wednesday 20th October at 7.00pm, Allan Cavill, formerly the South West Regional Representative and for many years now
our South West Mentor, helping to advise and deliver allotment sites across the region, will be talking about the “No Dig” approach to
allotment gardening, a subject on which he is an expert and has been promoting for over twenty years. Allan has been gardening
since his childhood and his talks on this subject are always well attended and very popular. He prefers to take a very interactive
approach, so please come armed with your questions. If you care about the health of you soil, keeping weed growth down and
making your allotment easier to work, especially if you are finding it more difficult with the passage of time, then this is a must hear
On Wednesday 24th November at 7.00pm, Andrew Cooper will give an illustrated talk on wildlife photography, with examples of
some of the pictures he has taken during his career. Andrew is one of Britain's most distinguished and influential documentary
television producers. As a broadcaster, presenter, writer and international award winning wildlife film-maker, he is a familiar face on
BBC TV through his documentaries and live reports on wildlife and the environment. As a television producer with the prestigious
BBC Natural History Unit he travelled widely over thirty five years, visiting more than 60 different countries from Cape Horn to the
High Arctic and the Himalayas to Hawaii and working with people like Sir David Attenborough. He is also the author of several
bestselling BBC books and his wildlife documentaries rank among the most popular in Britain. Andrew exhibits his photos and gives
talks to many different audiences in all sorts of places, so we are really lucky that he has agreed to do this for us.
