Growing autumn and winter veg
Wednesday 6th August 5:30-8:00pm
Trainer: Paul Richens
If you want to grow food all year round, then August is the time to plan your winter garden. During this session we’ll go through the best vegetable to grow in our lovely winter climate, while looking at the challenges that growing in winter brings and how to work around them.
Cob oven building
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th August, 10:30am-4:30pm on each day
We are building a movable cob oven at The Allotment Garden in Regent's Park using mainly recycled material and we need four extra pairs of hand to help out on both days. This is not a training session as such but more a chance to learn while making an oven (and it should be really fun!). The session will be lead by an experienced trainer who has worked with numerous community groups to build ovens. Lunch and refreshements will be provided and we will fire the oven at the end of the second day to make our first bread/ pizza to share with everyone.
New training calendar coming soon!
