This in-person training session with experienced grower Chrissy Harrison at Keats Organics farm in south east London will show you how to intensively grow food with as little effort as possible. We will cover a range of topics and techniques to help growers easily yield an abundance of nutrient dense produce, including building and maintaining healthy soil, managing weeds, irrigating crops, growing in season and utilising season extenders, growing appropriate successions of crops, interplanting crops, relay planting crops, and growing vertically.

Very limited places, so be sure to book your spot early.

Light snacks and tea will be provided. Participants are also advised to bring a packed lunch with them too.

Please note there is no electricity on site, so best to come with a fully charged phone.
