Programme description:

Interested in growing your own food but don’t know where to start? Can’t really figure out what’s wrong with that basil plant in your balcony that never seems to pick up?

 

Join us as we introduce you to the world of urban farming! Our urban farmer course is a journey of 4 interactive workshops that will combine both theory and hands-on activities. 

 

Learn the skills and knowledge to confidently germinate seeds, make compost, deal with pesky pests and much more!
