About the Course

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)

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.

It'll change the way you use your polytunnel for the better for ever.

Excellent course and well organised. The course caters for all levels and I personally took away a few ideas especially about "no dig" gardening. Kim was very informative and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

I went to this course with my mum last year and we had an absolutely fantastic day. I cannot recommend it highly enough! Kim treated us to a lovely lunch and refreshments throughout the day and I came away from the course with practical skills and knowledge that I could use at home. Everything Kim showed us could be used in any size garden regardless of your knowledge/skill.

This was my first online course. I found it engaging and insightful and will definitely be signing up to future courses with Kim. I definitely recommend giving it a go

Kim is definitely one of the new breed of gardeners so needed at the moment. I came away feeling totally inspired and motivated by her knowledge and positive attitude. Having done a course with Kim before I found myself referring to her book and as a result found my confidence in the garden growing ( excuse the pun )
Nothing like having this expert advice online though.

Kim makes her sessions so interesting and informative. She helped to install a sense of confidence in me as I've been slightly daunted by my garden. Lots of great tips & solid advice. Can't recommend her courses enough!!

Excited to squeeze onto one of Kim’s last courses before lockdown, and so glad I did! Great to get Kim’s fresh ideas on year-round productive cropping in polytunnels. My favourites; chard & purple sprouting broccoli still cropping after 4 years! So much to learn whether you’re just starting out or have been growing for a while. A great course for curious minds. If you get a chance, go for it! Thank you Kim!
