The Productive Garden – session 3
19 February 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Learn how to grow as much edible stuff as possible – year round, and organically.
Come along on the last two Sundays of the month from 10am to 1pm to learn how to do all the things you need to do to grow food – and the time when you need to do them!
Whether in window boxes, in a garden or in an allotment, we aim to give you the confidence to grow vegetables, salads, fruits and herbs.
Our teaching sessions always involve hands on learning so show up at 10am, dressed in warm clothes you don’t mind getting mucky, and sturdy boots or shoes. If you have gardening gloves, bring them along. If not, we can lend. And don’t worry, there will definitely be a tea/coffee break half way through!
In our third session – amongst other things – you will learn how to look after your Garden Tools. There’s little more annoying than a blunt pair of secateurs. Learn how to keep your blades sharp on all your tools for decades ensuring clean incisions at all times. There’s very rarely any need to throw away a tool so long as you look after them properly at all times. We will show you how.
