This course will be interesting for anyone who would like to get to grips with the theory and practice of eco-friendly gardening. We hope to show with our garden-scale model how to have productive food systems and a healthy and attractive environment. We can provide habitats for the birds and the bees and at the same time make the world around us a little more colourful, interesting and beautiful, by planting the right mixture of things. This course will offer a chance to discuss basic ideas around these topics and also to get out into the field and do some hands-on work as well. We look forward to creating a lively and stimulating learning situation for the group in which to discuss and explore how we can improve our immediate environment around us and the wider environment by sharing our knowledge, ideas and experiences, including our mistakes.
This course will be delivered from Thursday 1st July to Wednesday 7th July from 9:30am to 2pm
