Set amist four acres of established apple orchard and eighteen acres of cane and bush fruits, the day takes participants through the training and pruning of their fruit trees, from step-overs and cordons to fans and trails, Paul's fifty years growing experience and depth of knowledge have proved invaluable to particpants on previous workshop days, who often drop in to keep us updated on their progress, having successfully applied the techniques learned on Paul's course in their own gardens, and sometimes just to pick Paul's brains!
Following this, another Organic Kitchen Garden Workshop Day on on March 8th is already filling up fast, taking participants through the Organic Kitchen Gardening , from soil and bed preparation and crop choice to harvesting fruits and organic methods for pest control. The day is a pleasurable, hands- on workshop day set in Paul's Organic Kitchen Garden - established two years ago as an education centre. With a delicious home-made pasty for lunch and concluding with a much needed cream tea, the day is a sociable and rewarding experience.
Previous participant, George Robinson says 'Paul's knowledge and expertise were invaluable. The course gave me confidence to grow my own vegetables at home and I loved his 'just-get-on-with-it' attitude. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.'
If you're interested in taking part in either of these courses or would like further information, please call Hannah or Emma on 01209 713931.
