Description

Organic Food Growing – A Taster!

This will be a fun, hands on workshop which will provide a taster of organic growing and gardening.

During the day you will be introduced to the concept of organics including: what organics means, cultivation, the environmental aspect and the science of growing your own food. You will discover the basics of making compost, sow seeds and learn about pricking out and potting on.

If you are interested in organic growing but don’t know where to start, this workshop will give you the basics and inspire you to get planting!
