Edible gardening – Workshops & services

Workshops

I work with schools and community groups to plan and develop sustainable, organic food gardens. Services include:

Composting, worm farming, green manuring, growing fruit and vegetables, seed raising and saving, organic pest and disease management, vertical gardening (small plots or no soil), weed foraging, succession planting, recycling/upcycling.

These are just a few of the workshops we can provide. If you have something specific in mind, let me know.

Workshops can be tailored for all ages and we can assist you in relating workshops back to curriculum or project objectives.
