Event description

Description

Come and learn how to create a communal ornamental garden by understanding plant selection, creating a care and maintenance schedule, seasonal needs and involving the community.

Pop Farm is an urban farm, growing decorative plants and fresh herbs, vegetables and other ingredients for use by local people, food businesses and Pop Brixton’s community of caterers.

The purpose of the project is to make gardening more accessible to local people, educating, informing and sharing food growing knowledge in the community. To achieve this they have created a beautiful, planted and productive garden where local people can participate in a range of gardening activities.

Trainer: Sebastian Wood.
