We are delighted that Margaret Willes has agreed to talk on aspects of her book The Gardens of the British Working Class (Yale 2014).

Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP, so we have an idea of numbers, to or 020 8356 8925.

‘This is a wonderful book, and an unusual addition to the gardening shelf. It reveals the democracy of gardening and its being both a craft and an art – a mixture of hard labour and passion…Willes’s history is a constant statement of how green fingers have transformed lives. The book is a delight.’
—Ronald Blythe, author of Akenfield
