Get an introduction to the essentials of growing your own fruit and vegetables at this full-day course.
Make sure you're all set for the new growing season with this one-day introductory course on growing your own food!
This workshop is a great opportunity both for novices and those with more experience who’d like to dig a bit deeper into getting the very best from your growing spaces.
You’ll get a solid grounding in all the basics from expert growers Vista Veg, the growing cooperative that runs Eden’s veg bag scheme.
The course covers:
- soil testing
- clearing ground
- crop rotation
- seed propagation
- taking cuttings and dividing plants
- potting on and transplanting out
The course takes place partly indoors in the Vista Veg workshop, and partly in their polytunnels on the same site.
By the end of the day, you should have the knowledge and confidence to start growing your own food or improve your yields.
