Dabbling in DIY: Indoor Gardening Course

Rhoda-Mary Health

How's this for synchronicity? A course on growing your own organic veggies and herbs, run by the nice people at The Organic Centre in Co. Leitrim. And not just any old growing but indoor growing, so even those of us living a garden-free life can benefit. Now, I have to be patient because the course is not taking place until next March. In the meantime, The Organic Centre guys will be publishing a full programme of courses on their website at the end of November 2009, so there should be plenty to keep us occupied while we're twiddling our green thumbs, if that's not a contradiction in terms. *The* Course When: March 27th Saturday 2010 What: Gardening in small spaces and urban gardens Who is running it: Ingrid Foley Course description: Would you like to grow your own organic vegetables and herbs but feel you don't have the space? This course will teach you how to utilise even the smallest space and you will learn how to produce salads, herbs, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and carrots. Areas covered will be: varieties for container growing, choosing the correct compost, watering, plant feeding and maintenance. A practical session will demonstrate different containers from terra cotta pots to dustbins and also include sowing and how to set up watering and feeding methods. How much: €90pp including food and all materials Where: The Organic Centre, Rossinver, Co.
