This introductory level workshop, held across two two-hour sessions is aimed at those of us who want to grow our own food at home but don't know how or where to start. Our experienced tutor is a passionate gardener and educator who loves growing things to eat.

We'll cover lots of tried and tested techniques for making edible gardening reasonable and achievable without breaking our backs or our bank balances. A delicious meal from our garden in ten minutes a day? Possibly.

Ask questions, see examples of real solutions to common problems and get enthusiastic about a realistic and sustainable approach to edible gardening.

Please register early to reserve your space as spaces are strictly limited due to venue space constraints.

Other participants said:

- Informative. Great.
- Practical. Well worthwhile.
- Reactive to attendees requirements.
- If you're not a gardener it would be very useful as a way to plan.
- Came away with a definite plan.
- It's worth it!

In part 1 of the workshop we'll cover:

- How to choose where to grow things to eat (shade, the sun, water, access)
- Setting up beds
- Assessing your soil
- Preparing to grow and improving your site
- Planning some practical next steps

We highly recommend beginner and intermediate gardeners attend both sessions and take away tips for growing a great edible garden, ideas for what to do in the next few weeks and a renewed enjoyment of the gardening experience.
