Our first online course is now open for sign ups.
This course will be six weeks, with an expectation of 3-4 hours of work per week, which will include a webinar, an online Q&A session along with written materials and resources to give a basic, but thorough, understanding of the building blocks of any garden, from large through to a tiny balcony or even windowsill growing.
We will begin with the importance of building a healthy soil, and go through seasonal seed sowing, propagation, composting, peat and disease, seasonal growing and how as gardeners and growers we can help to regenerate the planet through our growing techniques. We will focus on organic and ecologically sound techniques and the importance of working with nature, rather than against. this course will look at the building blocks we need to grow a garden so is entirely appropriate for both foo and flower growers, and although we will focus on veg there will be ornamental examples in each section.
How To Grow will be taught by Sara Venn, our founder who has many years experience including a degree in horticulture and many years experience of growing with ornamentals and food.
This course will run throughout the year with a small break of a week or two between so this isn’t your only chance to take part. Our February beginning course is now full but we will be running it again from early April and will open for applications in late March
