Vertical Veg Growing Course
Hi everyone. I thought you green fingered types might be interested in this course. It’s a great opportunity for people who have a small outdoor space, possibly a balcony or flat roof, that they’ve been meaning to start growing on, but have been unsure how to go about it….:
Transition Town Stoke Newington has hooked up with the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden to host a food growing course run by Mark from Vertical Veg
.Mark has mastered the art of growing large quantities of food in containers in very restricted spaces and has converted his balcony into a beautiful and highly productive growing site – over the past 12 months he’s harvested 84kg of veg from a tiny area in his home in North London. Now he is turning his project into a social enterprise and is running courses to share his knowledge and experience.
The course consists of four sessions each lasting two hours. Mark will show you how to design and maintain a productive vegetable garden in containers on your balcony patio or window sills. Through a series of four participatory workshops mixing theory and practical you’ll learn the basics as well as more advanced tips to take your growing to new heights.
Sessions will be held at the beautiful Curve Garden on Dalston Lane an idyllic spot for it from 6.30 to 8.30 in the evening. It starts on the evening of Tuesday 14th June and runs each week with the last session on the 5th July. The full course of four sessions of two hours each costs £60 per person but if you follow Mark’s advice you can easily make that back through the food you grow for yourself.
