Grow Your Greens and Eat Them Too at This DIY Food Gardening Course in Obs

Gardening is cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes!

On Saturday, 5 and Sunday, 6 May, local edible garden pioneers, Urban Harvest, will be sharing their knowledge on growing your own greens in an urban lifestyle with their Food Gardening Course in Obs.

WHO ARE URBAN HARVEST?
Passion is what lies at the heart of this awesome initiative. Urban Harvest support a healthier, happier and more sustainable way of life for everyone. They regularly hold weekend food gardening courses where participants are given a crash-course in organic food gardening. This course will enlighten those who don’t consider their thumbs to be green just yet, and also challenge even the most seasoned gardeners.

WHAT THEY (LITERALLY) BRING TO THE TABLE
Many of us fancy the idea of eating straight from the source (i.e, our backyard), but don't know where to start. This practical two-day course will equip you with all the knowledge and skills needed to get your own sustainable food garden going. The intensive course will look at everything from garden design with installation to maintenance and how to get the most out of your own food garden.

The course will cover the following aspects of food gardening:

  • Basic garden design
  • Compost making
  • DIY organic fertilisers
  • Oil science
  • Plant care

Split between theory and practical elements, the experts at Urban Harvest will teach you how to take advantage of the Cape’s seasonal winter rains and how to effectively use this to the benefit of your garden. So whether you eat veggies with every meal or consider the garnish on your burger to be more than enough greens, learn how to grow your own goods right in the comfort of your own home with this unique course in food gardening.

TICKETS TO THE 2018 FOOD GARDENING COURSE IN OBS
Weekend tickets cost R1200/p and include fresh garden teas and a scrumptious lunch. Booking is essential as Urban Harvest likes to keep the groups small and intimate.To secure your place email [email protected].
