Allotment Vegetable growing course

Growing your own food on an allotment - 4 week course starting March 27th. Saturdays, 2:00pm - 5:00pm.

This 4 week course will take you through the basics of growing vegetables on an allotment. The course is open to all - whether you have an allotment or not. There is a strong emphasis on the practical element, so each week you will spend at least an hour on the allotments at Lough Owel Organic Farm, working with experienced gardeners and getting your hands (and probably most of the rest of yourself!) dirty. And if you get tired, you can stop and admire the view of Lough Owel - see above.

The theory part of the course will take place at Carton Rural Consultants, Tullaghan. Gardening tutors are James Carton and myself.

The course is part funded by LEADER , so it only costs €40 for the 12 hour course. Great value! To book, contact James Carton at 086-2488708, or email
