We’ll answer all of these questions and more in this practical workshop on growing vegetables, fruits and herbs at home. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn the basics of planning and running a kitchen garden, from seeding, weeding and harvesting to pest management and composting. But don’t expect too much theory, you’ll also create your own potting mix, pick up the basics of companion planting, and transplant your own sapling. We guarantee you will not leave this workshop without getting your hands muddy.  


What you’ll take away from this workshop:


– Confidence to start your own edible garden

– Excitement about plants

– 2 gobar pots: one seeded, one saplinged

– Your nails full of mitti!
