Within the gardeners calendar year, theres a special moment when you taste the first ripe tomato of the season or pick the fresh purple spikes of spring broccoli. During this 3 hour course, focused on the Veggie Patch, you will learn how to make the most of your patch, be it big or small. This course will take you on a journey from plot to plate, to show you how to plan and prepare your site, how to care and nurture your plants and some tips on what do with the harvest. You will learn the basics such as soil management, sowing and planting, watering, feeding and pest control.

Forest Garden Shovelstrode Shovelstrode
My name is Lisa Hooper and I have been a passionate horticulturist for many years being fortunate enough to have had the chance to learn all the old methods of vegetable growing from my very experienced Uncle. I have learnt that vegetable gardening is not only rewarding in so many ways but is also incredibly therapeutic. I worked in television news for over 25 years and during my visits home, I began to spend more and more of my time there getting my hands dirty, digging, weeding and even with a few aches and pains at the end of the day I still felt totally revived and refreshed and ready to return back to London. I believe there is no greater pleasure than feeding your family with the fruits of your labour and nothing tastes better than homegrown.
