Jim Paine - Climate Change Gardening

22 April 2024 at 7:30pm - Friends Meeting House, Norwich. A wide-ranging, illustrated talk that briefly summarises the current science behind climate change forecasts, before delving into the impacts likely to be seen globally, in the UK generally and East Anglia more specifically.

How, as gardeners, can we respond? What steps might we take to ensure we can still continue to enjoy success in the garden and contribute to tackling the issue by reducing our own impact, conserving and nurturing biodiversity and supporting larger community-wide projects - an active and optimistic approach.

Jim was previously employed at the IUCN-UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre in Cambridge, analyzing the impacts of climate change on national parks and nature reserves and then subsequently co-owning Walnut Tree Garden Nursery, specialising in rare and unusual hardy plants from 1998 until retirement in 2023.
