I'm running courses again outside in my large climate change savvy training gardens in beautiful West Wales. Online courses are also available - see my other listings. This course is ideal for those new to grow your own as well as those with experience looking to learn how to nurture delicious home grown fruit and vegetables with a greater resilience around our changing climate, with little to no fuss at all. Lots of time and money saving tricks included. This is all about working closer with nature for the benefit of all. Grow your own for person, plate and planet. Find out how to get planting for low maintenance, bumper harvests, working with wildlife, natural pest control, resilience tips and tricks, seed saving, protecting soil, free planting and much more besides. Kim is a popular Guardian gardening journalist and The Organic Way editor and has been running workshops and courses since 2014 from her training gardens as well as around the UK for everyone from Kirsty Allsopp's handmade festival to Garden Organic, the RHS and the National Botanic Gardens of Wales.

I'm been gardening since I was an apparently moody teenager 30 years ago. I've been writing for the Guardian on all matters grow your own since 2013 and teaching gardening since 2014. I edit The Organic Way magazine and have gardening columns in the press. My approach is very hands on and accessible and designed to debunk a lot of the jargon to make gardening accessible and wonderful for all. I am the author of The Climate Change Garden book.
