This hands-on course is designed to give you and your young people the skills you need to set up a simple productive garden and manage the growing space throughout the seasons.
The course will cover all the basics so that you can get children actively involved in growing their own food.
This course is being hosted by Reepham High School, home of The Allotment Project. The project was founded by Matt Willer, RHS School Gardening Champion of the Year 2018, as a way to give young people a chance to grow their own food and learn how to live more sustainably. You can see more about The Allotment Project by searching 'Reepham Allotment project' on YouTube.
