Event description

Description

We will be looking at organic methods to keep plants healthy, productive and pest free. During the session we explore how to grow and use companion plants, looking at specific examples in the community garden. The focus will be on pest prevention and will include barrier methods, interplanting, planting to attract beneficial insects and biological controls.

Trainer: Paul Richens

Paul has been a gardener and worm-botherer since his farming parents gave him his own plot at the age of three.

Since then he has worked as a scientific photographer at The Natural History Museum, where his love of natural history was nurtured; a video producer/director in the US; and an account manager before he sent up his own horticultural training company Blue Dome Synergies in 2008.

He is passionate about showing Londoners how to grow good organic vegetables in any small space. He advocates working with nature pursuing a ‘no kill’ policy and teaches amongst other subjects an understanding of living soil.
