It must be one of the best simple pleasures in life - picking produce that you've nurtured from seed or seedling to a healthy crop of homegrown veggies, fruit, herbs and salads. Whether you have a sprawling yard, a courtyard, a balcony or even a sunny window, we'll help you have it flourishing with an abundant crop of organic produce in no time.

This workshop will teach you the skills you need to design, set up and maintain your own organic small space garden regardless of space or experience. You'll learn how to create and maintain healthy organic soil, understand the needs of plants, and how to work them into a space together to create a productive edible garden.  

What you’ll get

  • Information Pack: 25+ pages of detailed notes covering garden planning, soils, fertilisers, compost, worm farms, seed raising, planting and much more!
