Talking Plants is a social event for people that love plants – seeded in Sheffield with roots across the North.
On Sunday 3 March, Talking Plants comes to The Hepworth Wakefield for a special afternoon event featuring Darryl Moore in conversation with The Hepworth Wakefield’s Cultural Gardener, Katy Merrington, and garden designer, Will Tomson.

Gardening in a Changing World: Plants, People and the Climate Crisis explores recent developments in planting design, horticulture, ecology and plant science. It addresses our relationship with plants and gardens, looking at the ways we can begin to appreciate and work together with plants in facing the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss.
