This course is ideal for anyone with a polytunnel or greenhouse 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.

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.
