This introductory level workshop, held across two two-hour sessions is aimed at those of us who want to grow our own food at home but don't know how or where to start. Our experienced tutor is a passionate gardener and educator who loves growing things to eat.

We'll cover lots of tried and tested techniques for making edible gardening reasonable and achievable without breaking our backs or our bank balances. A delicious meal from our garden in ten minutes a day? Possibly.

Ask questions, see examples of real solutions to common problems and get enthusiastic about a realistic and sustainable approach to edible gardening.

Please consider carefully whether you’re committed to attending before you register - we’d love to see you so mark it in your diary. These workshops are free of charge due to sponsorship from Hastings City Council so if you register to come but don’t show up then you take the place of someone else who could have enjoyed the experience.

We highly recommend beginner and intermediate gardeners attend both sessions and take away tips for growing a great edible garden, ideas for what to do in the next few weeks and a renewed enjoyment of the gardening experience.
