Description

Organic Food Growing Improvers

Take your organic growing to the next level with this fun and practical workshop.

During the day we will look at key elements of vegetable garden management such as crop rotation, vegetable family groups and companion planting. We will also look at planning an orchard and maintaining fruit trees and bushes. In addition you will learn about permaculture and good horticultural practice.

If you have completed one of our other Organic Food Growing Workshops, or you simply have a passion for organic growing and want to increase your knowledge, this is the workshop for you!
