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. 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 which is why the Gardening course cannot take place in the third quarter unfortunately. As of the fourth quarter, the course will resume. At what location, will be announced on this page. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please ask them on the community page of Campus Farm. 

As the months grow cooler, it is the perfect time to learn about the cultivation of plants and 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.
