Edible Garden – Making Plant Supports
May 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
You can eat organic produce from your garden year round if you know the right things to do – and when. Every month in these Sunday morning workshops, you can learn from Cat our community gardener all about how to make your Garden Edible – 12 months of the year and using organic gardening methods.
In this month’s Edible Garden workshop, we will be looking at a range of different plant supports. Different plants need different kinds of supports but for all of them it’s important you get your supports in early on. This Sunday we will create some of our own including a tomato ladder/arch for our cordon tomatoes. (The following Sunday May 12th we have a Willow Weaving workshop where you can learn about making Willow plant supports.)
Come in clothes you don’t mind getting mucky and suitable boots or shoes. If you have gardening gloves, please bring these with you. If not, don’t worry, we can lend you gloves.
The workshop is free but please do book below so we know how many people are coming.
The workshop runs from 11am to 1pm but you are more than welcome to stay on after and chat and help out with garden tasks. For lunch, we have a small kitchen with a hob and a microwave so feel free to bring anything along you’d like to heat up and eat.
