Grow Your Own Veg Workshop – Spring

25th March 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm


The first of three workshops  on everything you need to know to plan and start your own veggie plot. Get hands on experience in a commercial market garden and pick the brains of a professional. 

Tea and tasters from the garden will be served

Lead by Head Grower and designer, Amelia Lake, this workshop is aimed at both beginners and experienced growers. It will include a full tour of the Real Food Garden and provide you with the skills and knowledge to create an abundant veggie plot. The workshop will include  hands on experience and will cover:

  • No-dig gardening methods – how you can have lots of veggies and never dig again!
  • Organic growing – the principles and practices of growing organic veggies
  • Know your soil and site – soil science made fun. Bring a sample and get to know your soil and site
  • Rotation – understand this key element of growing veggies
  • Vegetable families – know your veg and what they need to thrive
  • Seed sowing – opportunity to look at different methods and have a go yourself
  • Planning your plot – take time to reflect on your plot and get advice

These workshops work as stand alone courses but work best together, a £10 discount is applied on booking all three.
