This in-person training session at the Keats Organics farm with Chrissy Harrison is best suited to people with some prior experience of food growing and who want to expand their knowledge of commercial food growing. The session is designed to show how to manage a productive market garden with minimal effort, whilst prioritising soil health and biodiversity.

We will cover a range of simple processes and techniques intended to get the most out of a limited growing space whilst keeping workload to a minimum. These processes and techniques will help growers mitigate against summer burn-out, ensure sustainability within the workforce and reduce reliance on a volunteer workforce that can’t always be guaranteed.


Limited places -- be sure to sign up to secure your spot!

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