Backyard Veggie Gardening workshops

Is creating a thriving, all year-round veggie garden on your wish list after the past few years? Growing vegetables is good for your wallet, your physical and mental health, and being prepared for future challenges.

This series of four, half-day workshops started in September last year, where we covered topics to help participants learn how to establish a successful self-sustaining vegetable garden with good planning, the right type of planting and some backyard inspiration.

The last in the series is on Problem Solving.

Backyard Veggie Gardening is perfect for both beginners and those who have a garden but want to learn more efficient practices and useful skills to make their garden thrive. Even if you haven't attended the previous workshops, don't worry - this workshop is full of helpful and practical information that you can apply immediately in you garden.
