Event description

Description

Join us for this one day, practical workshop on getting started with growing your own fruit and vegetables in an environmentally sustainable way. Our tutor, Sally Nex, writer and qualified gardener has huge experience in this area. She started growing her own veg over 20 years ago with a few bean plants in a city garden, just to see if she could.

Fast forward to today and Sally has become completely self-sufficient in fruit, vegetables and herbs, feeding her own family of four year-round as well as looking after several other people's fruit and veg gardens as a professional gardener. She also writes and teaches extensively on the topic.



The workshop will cover:

  • Where to put the plot
  • How to make a raised bed
  • How to assess and improve the soil organically
  • How to make compost
  • How to decide what to plant and in what quantities
  • Which varieties to choose
  • When to replant
  • Crop rotation
  • Organic control of pests and diseases

The workshop is aimed at anyone with little or no experience who wants to grow some or all of their own food, organically. Whether you have a small patch or a large allotment, lots of spare time or only a little, Sally's workshop will help you plan an approach to fruit and vegetable gardening which is right for you. The workshop is hands-on and you will come away with a selection of seeds you have sown to put in your garden.
