About the event

This is a 4 consecutive week programme consisting of 4 x one hour sessions.  Each one hour session is on a Saturday 1.30 pm – 2.30 pm commencing on June 1st through to June 8th, June 15th  and completing on June 22nd. 

It is a beginners’ workshop and no previous experience is necessary.

As an exciting introductory offer, these sessions are free of charge but we only have 10 places available, so a speedy response is best…

Participants will learn how to grow vegetables/fruit throughout the year, including winter vegetable gardening. There’s a vast range of vegetable /fruit varieties available, so we’ll help guide you through the maze of choice to ensure your plot is well stocked throughout the year, with high-cropping, long-lasting vegetables that are worth growing vs. what you can buy economically in the supermarket.
