We are delighted to announce that we have been granted £4,000 by The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust to offer a subsidised food growing course and work with volunteers to manage our kitchen and wildlife gardens during 2021.
The grant will also enable us to extend and upgrade our covered outdoor classroom area; allowing us to increase the number of people who can join us for events and add a ramp to improve access.
The Sustainable Kitchen Garden training course will start on Wednesday 28th April 2021 and run on one Wednesday each month until November. There are limited places on this programme so please book soon via our website if you’d like to take part.
These sessions are suitable for complete beginners and those wanting to gain confidence in planning & managing a sustainable kitchen vegetable and fruit garden.
The volunteer gardening programme will also run on Wednesdays and begins on Wednesday 14th April 2021.
Volunteers will receive hands-on practical training learn how to care for a wildlife friendly garden and courtyard plus grow edible crops.
As part of our little friendly team of dedicated volunteers you will help keep the gardens tidy, productive, and attractive to wildlife.
At the time of writing there is one place available on the volunteer programme. More places may become available later in the season. Please get in touch as soon as possible if you would like to join us.
We are very excited to be able to offer these opportunities to local people to help more people get growing food and gardening for wildlife. We look forward to welcoming you to Denmark Farm soon.
