Grow your own food - 2010 Gardening Courses


Spring is coming! Hard to believe, but the nights are getting shorter, a thaw will eventually arrive, the ground will be muddy, and the weeds will sprout at the first bit of warmth.

With that, I'm happy to announce that I'll be teaching a Beginners Organic Gardening class. I had hoped to start this weekend, but with the bad weather I have moved the start dates out.

There will be an evening class in Mullingar Educate Together NS(on the C-link road, beside the new Spar) - Tuesday evenings 8-10pm. Starting on January 26th.
There's a Saturday morning class in Belvedere - 11:00am - 1:00pm. Starting January 23rd.

Get back to basics with this 6-session course, to prepare for a
bountiful harvest. Whether you have a garden or a window-box, there’s something here for you, even if you don’t know a trowel from a dibber. And if last year is anything to go by, you'll go home from the later classes laden down with seedlings, as well as enthusiasm and information.

Cost is €120.

You will learn about -

Organic methods and permaculture,
Soil preparation - no dig methods,
Garden planning,
Growing plants from seed,
Preparing a place to grow vegetables,
Soil fertility,
Choosing plants,
Keeping a gardening diary,
Growing fruit,
Plant propagation,
And much more!

Anna; best of luck with your the students of 2010! I attended the course in 2009 and would recommend it for everyone. Anna has a fantastic way of getting everyone involved. I learned loads but to be honest it was the experience itself and the motivation that is what I remember most. Go for it!
