Philosophy at Waltham – Working with Nature: Welcome to Waltham Place. As we invite you to explore its many different facets with us, we ask that you shift your paradigms; that you look at the gardens with a different eye, to be accepting of the less formal, less tidy look. I am a gardener of place, who seeks to work with the nature of the place, adapting and evolving to its ecology rather than producing a decorated garden. Natural gardening is all about your relationship with the garden and its evolution, using your knowledge of plant systems and families. We are staunch believers in all aspects of biodynamic / organic husbandry and in the holistic management of the estate. We seek to combine forces with nature rather than fighting against it, and to explore the boundaries between garden and nature. In doing so, we have created a haven to an abundance of insect and animal life, fungi and indigenous flora. This is our legacy, our investment in the future. Strilli Oppenheimer
Biodynamic Wine Tasting Event – Friday 5th October 7.30pm-10pm
Have you ever bought a bottle of biodynamic wine? Grown with respect for the vines and the whole farm organism, biodynamic methods are being adopted by more and more vineyards who are looking for ways to make their wine production more sustainable. In France biodynamic certifications have risen by 10%-15% per year over the last 10 years- a sure sign that there is a market for wines produced in harmony with nature. With over 700 producers of biodynamic wine in the world it’s time to take a closer look and do some tasting! Join us for an evening of camaraderie, with plenty of wines to taste supplied by Berkshire’s own Vintage Roots.
Cost: £17.50 or £30 for two.
