Event description
This course is aimed at gardeners who have started growing veg or taken on an allotment and want to learn more

About this event

This full day course looks at growing healthy organic fruit and vegetables, looking at soil, no dig methods, composting, mulching, cover crops, creating beds, raised beds and hugelkultur.

Planning your crop sequences is important so Sally covers traditional rotations as well as alternative approaches such as polyculture and continuous cropping. This is followed by a session on growing soft and top fruits and coping with pests and disease.

There will be a tour of the kitchen garden, one acre plot, polytunnel and allotments.

The cost of this course is £95 for the first person with a discount ticket of £75 for the second and subsequent person booked at the same time. The numbers on these days are limited to 10 people. The price includes all tuition, course notes, a copy of one of Sally's books, a light lunch and refreshments during the day. The day starts at 10 am, with arrival from 9.45 am. There is a final Q and A session and the course ends at about 4 pm.

Cancellation policy - you can cancel with full refund up to 7 days before the course. Short notice cancellations will be transferred to another date.
