These workshops are free, fun and suitable for all the family

Week 1: Know your soil

Soil is what underpins a successful garden. Find out about the soil from your plot or containers and how to look after it so your plants not only survive but thrive. Learn basic soil testing, composting & mulching techniques.

How do you know what to grow? How much? What to prioritise? This workshop will introduce different crops, plant families and rotations, so you feel more confident knowing what to grow, where and when.

Week3: Grow your own - seed sowing & propagation

This session will share top tips for starting plants off as seeds. We will cover all you need to know for successful propagation, and also introduce alternative ways of producing plants, such as taking cuttings.

Week4: Keeping plants healthy - pests & diseases

Are you concerned about bugs? Want to reduce the risk of your plants getting diseases?. We will explore practical ways to keep your plants healthy and reduce the chance of crop failure.
