vertical-gardening-ideas-a-gallery-on-flickr-413x500Whether you live in a flat, or sprawling mansion, you can grow your own food, and therefore become more sustainable. In this workshop we show you how to establish a vegetable garden, be it a patio or hanging garden, or something more substantial. We’ll give you tips on compost making and water wise irrigation. In addition we’ll talk about seasonal crops and  crop rotation. Back in the kitchen, we will cook a few of our seasonal vegetables and give you tips on how to get the most out of the seasonal bounty. Included in the price is a 3 course lunch, including some of the dishes we have cooked together. Sunday 21 September starting at 9:30am at Wickedfood Earth cooking school.
