Workshop: the basics for planning your urban garden


Workshop: the basics for planning your urban garden

Details

The workshop will present methods for small-scale urban gardening, from a single windowsill to a balcony or small garden plot.  The topics to be covered include but not limited to:

– planting calendar for the Netherlands (when to plant)

– getting to know your space (what to plant)

– square meter gardens (aka ABC method)

– design for maximizing sun energy uptake, reducing wind, and conserving water

– pest prevention and control

– resources for new (and experienced) gardeners in NL

The workshop will conclude with an opportunity to get your hands dirty, either in the garden at the Banier (weather permitting) or a small project to take home.  So come prepared!

We aim to have a friendly, informal session with plenty of room for discussion and questions throughout as well as coffee, tea and snacks.

See you there!
