Free course will teach budding borough gardeners to grow their own veg
5:14pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Local
BUDDING borough gardeners can take part in a free training course in Kates Hill tomorrow (Wednesday September 18) and learn how to grow their own fruit and veg.
It will be the first session in a six-week course run by the Grow Food 4 Life project, which aims to help people grow their own produce.
Helen Voyle, project co-ordinator, said the decision to run the course followed on from the success of a similar course in July.
She said: “Everyone enjoyed the first course and found it really useful. One gardener said that he was surprised at what he already knew, and amazed at what he didn’t know.
“A lot of vegetables are really easy to grow, and home-grown vegetables taste so much better than from the supermarket. Even if you haven’t got a garden, you can have salad and herbs all summer from a window-box or a few pots in the yard.”
The course is open to anyone who lives in the borough and will run from 1pm-3pm at Hillside Herbs, Jasmine Road.
Places can be booked by calling 01384 816710 or 07570091070.
