Description

Three gardening workshops with Michel Thill from Social Landscapes.

Session 1, 15 October, Pest Control

This two-hour session will make you familiar with common garden pests such as slugs, aphids, blight and pigeons. We’ll be looking at practical tools and strategies to overcome these unwanted visitors, and implementing some tried and tested techniques to help control them.

Session 2, 5 November, Winter Vegetables

The workshop will explore what types of veg are suitable to grow late in the year, and those which can be planted from seed, or as young plants. In a practical exercise we will prepare the ground, sow and plant veg and plan how we will need
to care for them as they become established.

Session 3, 19 November, Soil & Compost

We we will examine what the components of good soil are, how we can keep it healthy for producing food and flowers, and how to improve it using different composting methods. We will explore techniques that are applicable on different scales, from our community garden to containers or pots on a balcony.
