Plant your vegetable garden and take it home!

The workshop is for those who want to start growing vegetables in their garden, balcony, or backyard!

Do you want to grow vegetables in your backyard or balcony? Do you want to know where to start or what seeds to choose? Would you like to sow seeds so that you can later reap lovely vegetables?

Participate in a workshop led by urban farmers, Signe Voltelen and Marie Hertz from SLOW Living Workshops. Here you get hands on knowledge, tips and tricks for growing lovely vegetables in the backyard or in the garden. You will leave with the knowledge to start a small vegetable garden at home.

You will learn
what seeds to easily start with and what plants are best suited for a small vegetable garden

 tools and materials you need and overview of best practices for growing vegetables 
about healthy seedlings and growing seedlings
Preparation of a raised bed – what it consists of
Soil fertility, how good soil feels and where to obtain it
Pests – how can you avoid them? 
Irrigation – opportunities and tips

You will take home
free seeds, small plants, a garden box and soil. The course gives you guidance and the practical experience of planting a small vegetable garden. You will go home with Slow living workshops workshop notes, so you can continue the cultivation and care at home.

The course will be approximately half “theory” and half “practice.” You can expect to get seeds and soil on your hands. You will leave this course with a practical knowledge of how to start vegetable growing, and supplies to plant the small vegetable container you take home and enough to plant even more if you desire. We will serve delicious tea and coffee.
