Thanks to everyone who joined our organic fruit growing course in February. We had four sessions and it was great to be able to deliver the theory, alongside the hands-on practical from gage and pear tree planting to pruning trees, bushes, canes, vines and even the delicious Japanese wineberry.
‘It’s such a fantastic space to teach in the outdoor classroom,’ says Jules, our Head of Development and chief gardener, ‘with tea breaks around the fire bowl I cant wait to teach more gardening and food growing related courses at SW this year.’
What you said you liked about the course:
- “Being able to put into practice aspects of the learning: planting of fruit trees and pruning.”
- “Having extensive hand-outs was useful as my memory isn’t great! ”
- “Being able to bring questions about current issues“
- “Being given the knowledge and explanations and then being able to test out your knowledge and learn as you go along in a supportive group.”
