Making Raised Beds from Pallets Workshop

This great course will be a practical, hands on learning experience, making raised beds in The Secret Garden at Avonmouth Station.

The workshop will include how to choose the perfect pallet, how to ensure your beds are safe and sturdy, where to source your pallets from as well as some practical work around the best uses of raised beds in gardens, allotments and in the public realm. At the same time the group will make a large raised bed that will be left on site for the Avonmouth community to use.

Because we want you to get the best experience possible, this workshop has limited numbers so do get your tickets before they are all gone!!

Building Compost Bins From Pallets workshop!!

This year we will be running a series of workshops, courses and talks, mainly at Hartcliffe City Farm, for you to come along and learn from experts  about their specialisms. Some of these will be very practical and hands on and some will be more theoretical.

The first of these is on 4th February at Hartcliffe City Farm, where we will be running a very practical workshop teaching all aspects of compost bay building from pallets. We will cover clearing your site, which are the best pallets to use and which to steer clear of, as well as giving advise on composting and different ways to achieve the best compost for your garden.

There are limited spaces to allow for the best experience for all our attendees!!

If you’d like to book your ticket, just click on the link below!
