June is the hub of the gardening year. We'll be continuing with successional sowing of later crops and planting out of tender ones. Long summer days, especially in Scotland, and everything will be growing at a pace – but so will the weeds and we'll have to deal with them and the more we can do now, the more it'll help later on.

Activities will be varied, with work also in other areas such as woodland, house and kitchen.

Experience the joy of living and working in a place dedicated to supporting the discovery of our own potential. In addition to working with your hands you are invited to take part in conversation and study, meditation and other supportive activities, so you can give space to yourself, and your own questions.
