About My Training
I’ve run workshops for well over five hundred people on how to grow food in containers. So I understand the range of problems you might be struggling with and how to overcome them. My workshop clients include London’s growing charity, Capital Growth, The UK Ideal Home Exhibition, the national charity, Garden Organic, as well as numerous community growing projects and Transition Town groups.
What I offer
I run workshops on all elements of growing food in containers in small spaces including mastering the foundations of container growing, increasing productivity, how to make self watering containers, and wormeries. I also run ‘train the trainer’ courses for those who want to inspire and support others in their community to get growing on their balconies and rooftops.
I love growing food and I love teaching people how to grow.
I also talk at events about container growing and the health, community and environmental benefits that growing food in a city can offer. Interested? Please get in touch.
