Would you like to kickstart your veg growing efforts this year?

Come to the farm for the day and we will help you plan it all:

  • plants – what to grow, when to sow your seeds, when to plant out seedlings.
  • beds – where to put them, what size, the ‘no dig’ method
  • compost – how to start/improve home composting
  • weeding and watering – strategies for looking after your plants
  • pest control – making sure you get to eat your veggies

This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, or those just wanting to plan and prepare better than in previous years.

During the day we will teach you permaculture principles that help you design your garden. You will choose what to grow; learn how to prepare your beds and set up your compost system. We will show you how to start off seedlings and give advice on planting them out.

You will leave the day with a plan of action for growing your own veg at home this year.

Lunch will be provided – hot soup and cake made by our very own Pam.

Advance booking is required – fill out the form here.
