Gardening is the art of planting and growing all sorts of greenery; plants, vegetables, small trees, herbs and flowers. You can design and plant an entire garden, but the plants on your balcony or in your kitchen are also part of gardening. There is a lot to learn about cultivating vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers.

The cold winter months are upon us again, the perfect time to prepare yourself for the coming garden season by learning now about different plants and gardening itself. Learn all about growing plants, vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers, and what you can do to make your garden outside flourish. 
The lessons are held on the Campus Farm on the grounds of X. Here, three beds have been reserved for the course, giving you the perfect mix of theory and practical experience. The focus of the course is on cultivating edible plants and working as organically and sustainably as possible, i.e. without fertilizers and pesticides. You will learn the theory and put it into practice. In addition, you will learn about the life cycle of plants; from sowing to harvest. Last but not least, gardening helps you relax and discover many new tastes! 

The course starts on Tuesday 13 September. There is a high demand for this course, so be quick to enrol for one of the few places available.
