IDENTIFY all common fruits and vegetables and how to crop them when ready.
EXPLORE plant life cycles, composting, wormeries and how to feed the soil.
DISCOVER the many benefits of a healthy, homegrown diet.
Feel free to drop-in for an hour, or join for the full session – every pair of hands count!
Tools and equipment are provided, but do wear old clothes & sturdy shoes.
Each session will end with refreshments.
