Organic Food Growing
This fun and informative workshop looks in depth at theoretical and practical elements of organics.
We will develop a detailed understanding of organic growing including; dealing with pests and diseases, vegetable garden management and gaining valuable cultivation tips to help you grow your vegetables organically. We will also learn more about composting systems and tailoring compost to your own needs. In addition you will develop practical horticultural skills such as how to use tools, raking, making seed beds and other cultivation methods.
This is the perfect workshop for anyone with an interest in organic growing and can be done as a stand-alone workshop or can be booked as a follow on from our Organic Taster Workshop.
