No matter what style of gardening one enjoys there is always room to grow some food!
Join passionate food grower Patrick Hunt on Saturday September 28th at Hunting Brook Gardens where he will present the first in a series of workshops entitled “Growing Food in the Home Garden”.
This workshop will cover how to set up and maintain a food growing area for bulky crops as well as looking in detail at options for edibles to sow and plant out this Autumn.
Patrick will cover
- propagation techniques
- what varieties to grow
- sourcing seed
- planning for crop rotation
As part of the workshop we will prepare a raised bed from scratch and participants will learn about the no-dig gardening method.
Come and learn how to grow food and explore the gardens at Hunting Brook to discover the hidden edibles in the borders.
