21KEC406 How to set up the Autumn School Garden via Zoom


Thursday 16th September, 14th October & 11th November from 7.30pm-9pm

 September 16th 7.30pm to 9pm:  This month we will look at a selection of perennial vegetables such as Asparagus, Kale, Cabbages and Spinach suitable for the school garden which will come back year after year with minimal maintenance. This will help when planning what edibles to grow in the school garden. 

October 14th 7.30pm to 9pm:  This month we will cover how to grow a few hardy annual vegetables that can grow outdoors through the winter months and how to prepare the vegetable beds for the winter months. We will also look at pruning and mulching. 

November 11th 7.30pm to 9pm:  This Month we will look in detail at the various ways to make beautiful compost for the school garden using cones or an open bay system. We will look at all the potential problems and how to avoid flies, smell and vermin and what we can and can't be added in.  We will also look at making leaf mould compost.
