Small Space Gardening

Ref: C2346565

Perhaps you have been held back from starting a garden by limited space and limited funds. This workshop will seek to encourage you to 'grasp the nettle' and have a go at a relatively low cost and easy to manage method. We will learn how to construct a vertical garden using any available wall space, and recycle common household products to save money. You will be encouraged to share seeds and plants and engage with your neighbours.

Course aim

We shall learn how to use two-litre plastic bottles in several ways to save money, recycle and enhance the use of a small-space garden or yard. This will include how to nurture seedlings and grow plants in a vertical garden.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • This course is for beginners and improvers

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Plan your own small space garden.
  • Recycle common household products to save cash and enhance the space available.
  • Apply basic skills in numeracy and literacy to learning about the basic processes of gardening.
  • Consider ways of cooperating with others to mutually support small space gardening in your locality.
