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 growing the plants on your balcony or in your kitchen is also part of gardening. Learn everything about cultivating vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers, and enrol for the  gardening course! Do you like to be outside, not afraid of getting your hands dirty and do you love gardening? Cultivate your own garden at the Campus Farm!

The days are once again getting longer. Slowly, nature will wake up from her hibernation; an exciting time for the garden. In the coming course we are going to lay the foundation for the new gardening season. That means there is a lot of sowing to do, both outdoors and inside the greenhouse. Let the spring come!

Attention! The course starts on Tuesday 11 May. We value your health, therefore we have to keep the traffic on the TU Camps to a minimum. Only 8 lucky people can participate in this course. Be quick to register for one of the few spots for this offline course!

During the Gardening course you learn more about cultivating plants. The lessons will be given on the Campus Farm on our X terrain.

Are you an outdoorsy kind of person, not afraid of occasional dirty fingernails and do you enjoy gardening? Whether you are an experienced gardener or a novice, you will be allocated a plot and it will be up to you to plant and do your gardening whenever it suits you.
If you want you can join the Campus Farm community, whose Facebook group you can use to contact each other and ask any questions you may have. If you feel you don’t have enough experience or knowledge, you may also like to consider taking a course in Gardening

Do’s and don’ts at the Campus Farm

Practical Information

You do not need to purchase your own garden tools since these are already available at no additional cost. If they are available you can also use our seeds.
Due to Corona measures you need to ‘book’ a timeslot to work in your own garden. In February we will let you know how this works. If you have any questions, please e-mail hosts-x@tudelft.nl or ask them in the Facebook group.

 

Every Tuesday evening we organize a Community Garden evening in the Campus Farm on the X terrain where you can enjoy gardening and connect with other garden lovers! Learn from your peers while you work on the communal parts of the Campus Farm together. For everyone that participates, we’ve got a small gift.

We value your health, therefore we have to keep the traffic on the TU Camps to a minimum. Only 8 lucky people can participate in an evening session. Be quick to register for one of the few spots!

Our Gardening teacher Rutger Spoelstra will be there to oversee the Community Garden evening sessions. If you have specific questions, he can help you out.
