Polytunnel grow your own: productive, organic, year round food growing

X

Description

Growing some of your own produce is one of the most empowering experiences going, especially now as lockdown restricts us and food security concerns abound. This course is ideal for anyone with a polytunnel that wants to learn how to use it most effectively all year round (including to have lots of luscious fresh produce over winter) Online course also available - see my other listings. With lots of time and money saving tricks, plus an emphasis on working with nature and building resilience, Kim will show you how to nurture delicious home grown fruit and vegetables around our changing climate, with little to no fuss at all. 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 the National Botanic Gardens of Wales. Kim is also the author of The Climate Change Garden Book. Get in touch for more details and to book your place. It'll change the way you use your polytunnel for the better for ever. COVID UPDATE - Courses are being run again with smaller groups in my large training gardens with extra cleaning measures and facilities in place. All attendees are contacted to confirm they have no covid symptoms pre course.

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.
