Our first gardening course of the year completed yesterday with the sell out Apple Pruning workshop. It is only two weeks to go until our next gardening course: Organic Vegetable Gardening and, following on from the success of the BBC Big Allotment Challenge, we have had lots of media interest in the course which is on Wednesday 4th March.
Tony Chalcraft will be leading this course and he is a fount of all knowledge when it comes to organic vegetable gardening. He is an expert teacher and will guide you through what to grow and how to grow it so you have fresh vegetables all year round.
National Gardening Week
Once that course is complete, we will be in the final throes of preparing the whole garden to be open to the public from the 1st April. We will be open Easter weekend (except the Monday) and then we will be in the run up to the Royal Horticultural Society’s National Gardening Week in mid- April, more details to follow soon.
The gardening courses come thick and fast in April, starting with Willow Weaving, then Floral Digital Photography and followed by the ever-popular free-range poultry course. To book on these, or for details of all the 2015 gardening courses, click here
As he does every summer, John will be leading the bee-keeping courses every Wednesday from 6th April. The evening course can be booked for any Wednesday and is a real hands-on course where you will learn all the basics of bee-keeping using our own hives. Pre-booking is essential.
