Course Title: Sustainable Vegetable and Fruit Gardening
Course Code: HR142

Department: Horticulture
Course Type: Part Time

Help make the most of your garden by learning about sustainable techniques, planning and planting from our knowledgeable tutor. Covers organic guidelines, soil management, growing vegetables and more. A very hands-on course. This course is held one morning every month so you will have time to put into place what you have learnt in your own garden or allotment and see the crops develop over a longer time at KMC.

We anticipate you will plant, grow, harvest (and eat!) a range of fruit and vegetable varieties during your course.
