Event description
Want to grow your own food but need help and advice to get started? LDLC has partnered with Thurso Grows to deliver a 4 part programme.

About this Event

We are so excited to offer this programme in partnership with Thurso Grows!

The dark months of January and February are the best times to start planning for Spring and imagining all the amazing food and fun you can have once the light returns. This course is here to encourage and support new food growers in the Highlands to get to grips with starting and evolving their gardening skills this spring.

The four part programme is free, simple, fun and informative and our aim is to plant a seed – so people feel encouraged and enthused to get into growing! Each topic will be hosted on Saturday mornings at 12pm on Zoom. The sessions run for 45 minutes.
