We are delighted to present our main speaker: Tom Hart-Dyke from Lullingstone Castle. Tom Hart Dyke first shot to international prominence in the year 2000, when he was kidnapped in the Colombian jungle on a plant hunting expedition that went dangerously wrong. The idea for The World Garden was born in the depths of despair in the Colombian jungle and since his release Tom has been busy building the now renowned ‘World’ in his back garden at Lullingstone Castle.
We also welcome Sam Taylor, Editor of ‘The Lady’ magazine and local resident. The Lady is Britain’s longest-running weekly women’s magazine, being in continuous publication since 1885 and specialising in quirky, entertaining and informative features and quality writing.
