The Edible Garden Year

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 workshop, Cat will teach you how to make hard wood cuttings from fruit bushes such as red and black currants.  This is exciting as you will get to know how you can make many new plants from one ‘mother’!
