About the event
Nothing quite compares to the feeling of pulling up your first carrot or tasting a pea fresh from the pod. This awe and wonder is hard to replicate in the classroom. That’s why we’ve designed The Edible Garden – a fun, hands on course to help you garden and manage your growing space throughout the seasons.
The course will cover the basics to help you get children actively involved in growing their own food, learning where food comes from and even tasting new fruit and veg they may have never tried before.
Objectives of the course:
· Find out about soils and composts to get the best yields
· Discover ways to grow edible plants in different seasons
· Create a plan for year round growing and eating, from a delicious selection of plants
· Match common growing problems with pests and diseases
Skill level: Beginner
Suitable for all Key Stages
The RHS Campaign for School Gardening works with thousands of schools and groups every year, providing resources, guidance and training in order to give young people more access to nature.
