Understanding Soil/No-dig Gardening

Saturday April 8th 2023

Time: 11am – 4pm

Cost: Donation

Facilitator: Siobhán Lavelle

Soil is a complex and ever-changing eco-system on which we are dependent for our food production.

In this workshop, you will gain a deeper understanding of soil and learn some simple and affordable tests you can carry out on your own soil. Knowing more about the soil you are working with will help you to have more success in growing by knowing which plants will thrive there and what amendments you need to make.

You will also learn the no-dig gardening method – a way of gardening without damaging the delicate soil eco-system which supports our plants.

This will be a relaxed and friendly workshop with lots of opportunities to ask questions.

There may be more similar workshops on different gardening topics this summer if there is enough interest.

There is no charge for this workshop. Each participant can donate what they feel the workshop is worth to them.

Barter offers may also be accepted. Please contact us to discuss this option.

Tea and coffee will be provided. Please bring a packed lunch.
