Become a gardening expert with this once-a -month course that follows the seasons.
This course is suitable for those interested in successfully growing veggies, cropping shrubs, fruit trees at home, as well as those with a profit from harvest in mind.
We are offering 14 workshops, one every 3 to 4 weeks, 9:20-2:30 in Whakamarama, Tauranga:
-Plant propagation, 4 days
-Understanding soils, 3 days
-Managing pests, diseases, weeds, 3 days
-Companion planting, plants for bird and insect retention, 1 day

Each workshop is a stand alone and is not dependent on what came before. We intend to repeat these workshops yearly, so you can jump in at any time.
Due to everyone’s busy schedules, we are running parallel and identical Saturday and Tuesday workshops.
If you are signed up for one and have a scheduling conflict, you are welcome to attend the other day, if space allows.
Next workshop is Understanding Soils - Microbiology, 19 or 22 October.
