The Edible Garden – Seed Sowing

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.

This month, we will be looking at what growing conditions seeds need to get  them off to a good start, and sowing seeds in modules and pots.  Plus how to protect young seedlings from pests and diseases.

Dress up nice and warm and 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.
