This workshop series will teach you how to create and manage a healthy, productive organic food garden growing your own vegetables and herbs. You will be studying both the theory and practice of organic gardening. There are four workshops in the series, held each fortnight over a period of two months. The topics covered at each workshop session are:
1.Planning your food garden and working your soil.
2.Planting and garden care.
3.Dealing with pests and diseases.
