The ‘Walk and Talk’ event is set to take place on Sunday February 20 at the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin, Dublin 9.
The event poses a relaxing and informal opportunity for those who stammer their family and friends, or those with an interest in stammering to walk and talk as they make their way around the relaxing and beautiful gardens.
The gardens are noted for fine plant collections holding over 15,000 plant species from a variety of habitats worldwide, for award-winning plant houses, and for an array of garden features.
They plan to visit the gardens café after the walk for refreshments. The walk is open to all ages, although children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. If you are interested in this event please register here – it is of course completely free to attend.
