Knowing how to nurture and develop the structure and biology of soils is essential to growing healthy organic crops. Composting and green manures are an integral part of supporting this. This one-day workshop will introduce participants to core skills, knowledge and equipment needed to successfully plan for and use compost and green manures in the garden. Part of the workshop will focus on learning how to select appropriate green manures and understanding the principles behind composting. Participants will spend a good proportion of the workshop in the gardens for demonstrations and the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience. This will include sowing, establishing and digging-in of green manures as well as building a range of compost heaps.

Our big workshop weekend offers a range of full-day workshops to choose from. You can take a single workshop or two workshops over the weekend. Our workshops always get positive feedback from participants and you will benefit from on hand expert tutors with years of experience in their field. The weekend format also offers you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and to spend some time in our gardens, orchards and woodlands in beautiful East Clare.
