This spring Dave Roberts of Telferton Allotment Association will be running another grow your own course in association with PEDAL.
There are five places available on the course, and the cost will be £15 per person in total (this will cover the costs of seeds, fertiliser and other materials). The course will be held at Telferton Allotments over four Saturdays — 23 April, 7 May, 14th May, and 21 May 2011. Participants will learn how to dig, prepare and sow the beds. Thereafter it would be up to you to look after the crop with Dave being available to assist and help where necessary until November.
The course is aimed at people who have no previous growing experience and who did not attend our previous allotment grow your own course last year (those who attended other PEDAL growing courses are however welcome).
In the first session participants will be allocated a plot and Dave will advise on how to prepare the ground and discuss with you what you would like to grow. The following sessions will focus on preparing the ground, sowing and tending your crop. Dave is happy to help participants to grow whatever they would like, within the bounds of the growing season up until November.
