Talking To Zeus
by Don Shaw

Inspired by the book Talking To Zeus, by Jane Shaw; Greek, green, fresh and vivid, this is based on a true story set in the world renowned environmental gardens called Helikion. Perched on a steep hillside, thirty miles from Athens, Jane starts work as an intern in the Gardens which are managed by the elderly, feisty, eccentric, garden fanatic Joy.

When suddenly the Gardens are under threat of closure we see how Jane, Joy and the local Greek volunteers combine forces to fight the proposed demise of the Garden.
