Creating an Outdoor Classroom - 2 Day Course
This course is directed at teachers and parents who are involved in, or who would like to establish a school garden as a cross curricular teaching aid.
We will work through the development of a garden from choosing and mapping a site, making raised beds and a compost area to sowing seeds and caring for plants.
There will be a strong emphasis on developing practical skills
We will cover soil identification and improvement, composting, crop rotation and plant families and habitat identification. We will provide a sowing calendar for the year.
