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.

Please note: over the next months, the Campus Farm will be undergoing some exciting renovations. The first month of the course will take place in the greenhous of the Campus Farm. When the renovations start, the course will continue at an alternative location at X.

As the months grow cooler, it is the perfect time to learn about  the cultivation of plants an how to prepare for the new (gardening) season. Learn all about growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers and what you can do at home to make your own garden/balcony flourish.

Especially for this course, two temporary gardening beds are set up for use, so you will gain the perfect mix of theory and practical experience.

The focus of the course will be on edible plants and working naturally, so without the use of fertilizers and pesticides. You will learn the theory and put this into practice and discuss the entire lifecycle of plants, from sowing to harvesting. Next to all this, gardening will also help you to relax and discover many new flavors.

Are you curious about what you can expect from this course? Come along to the Free Try Outs and speak to our gardener Rutger Spoelstra on Tuesday 3 September in Freetown at X.
