Alston, CA9 3RF
This one-day introductory course on growing your own food is great for novices and those with experience who’d like to dig a bit deeper.
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 is partly indoors in the town hall, and partly in a nearby garden, with kind permission by the owners.
By the end of the day, you should have the knowledge and confidence to start growing your own food or improve your yields.
