Beginners’ Edible Organic Gardening course

“I got a raised garden bed for Christmas and I’m not sure what to do next…”

“We just moved and we finally have room to grow some fruit and veg but it’s a bit overwhelming…”

“I kill every plant that I touch. Do you really think I can grow anything edible?…”

“I’m on maternity leave this year and I’d really like to focus on healthy eating for my family…”

“I’ve just retired and I’ve been promising myself that I will get into the garden…”


This could be just what you’re after:  six 2-hour small group sessions to kick-start your home food growing in a fun, interactive way. Learn the basics of soil preparation,  tree planting and maintenance, growing vegetables and herbs from seeds and cuttings, planning your garden layout and seasonal routine.

This course has been developed from a 10-week course run in our home garden last year, where participants had a great time getting to know each other, tasting home-grown produce, practising hands-on gardening and gaining a better understanding of growing organic food. Group members have kept in touch and now regularly share photos of their produce, garden questions, ideas and encouragement.

Now is a great time of year to get organised and enjoy gardening.

Wednesday afternoons, 12-2pm, 5th March – 9th April at Warradale.
$20 per session (Full course fee $110 if paid by the first session).
Small group of 5-8 participants.
