Dr. Gavin Haig: Creating a Wildlife Garden
Dr Gavin Haig is a naturalist and former surgeon, who has studied the healing properties of many native plants, with much of the work carried out in his own garden, Spillfords, on the River Exe. His garden has featured on television and, with a wide variety of habitats, it provides a home for one of the rarest butterflies in Europe – the marsh fritillary.
Gavin’s passion for natural healing led him to develop a wildlife garden alongside the inpatient wards at Tiverton Hospital, which won the Rodney Higgins Environmental Award in February 2018. This talk will feature an illustrated tour of Gavin’s garden, with advice and information on plants that heal and provide a sense of wellbeing.
