Introduction to Gardening Workshop - Spring: Saturday 2nd May 2020

Regular price £29.00 Sale

A new range of gardening workshops here on our organic farm for garden lovers new and experienced alike! Our aim is for you to leave as passionate and relaxed about gardening as we are!

Join Rich Heathcote, one of our head gardeners on Saturday 2nd May 2020 for the start of a series of relaxed, informative and hand-on workshops.

Our hugely popular rural skills workshops begin at 10am and run to approximately 4pm, here on our farm on the Lincolnshire-Cambridgeshire border, just 4 minutes from Market Deeping, and 18 minutes from Peterborough and Stamford train stations.

We'll have welcome refreshments ready for when you arrive and, after a quick opportunity to say hello to your fellow workshop students, it's time for the fun to begin:

  • Learn the essential jobs for this time of the year; what to do, how to do it in an efficient and enjoyable way and how to ensure your gardening is fun and creative.
  • Learn with Rich as you get hands-on with our own seasonal gardening jobs list; the very best way to learn new techniques.
  • Discuss with Rich your own garden challenges and ways to make gardening at this time of the year simple, enjoyable and productive.
  • An informative tour with Rich of our almost entirely pollinator-friendly gardens we have created here on the farm - we'll explain how and why we have planted the way we have with bees and pollinators in mind and how to obtain year-round colour and interest for your own outside space. 

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get practical advice on gardening, throughout the day. 

THIS WORKSHOP IS TAUGHT BY RICH HEATHCOTE

Rich Heathcote is one of our head gardeners here at the farm.
