Gardening is good for us, providing many well known health and therapeutic benefits. As we get older and our stamina and mobility reduce we need to adapt our gardens and our ways of working to suit our changing ability. We can design a garden that is accessible, beautiful, low maintenance, eco friendly and productive. During this day long workshop we will discuss the design of accessible, compact, raised beds, no dig, vertical, container gardens and the best tools and practices for older gardeners. You will get hands on practical experience of basic gardening skills such as sowing seeds, transplanting seedlings, making compost and controlling weeds and get to take home a tray of self sown seed with you.

Material cost: €5

Our Big workshop weekend offers a range of full-day courses to choose from. You can take a single course or two courses over the weekend.
