Are you growing food? If you are, would you like to share some tips and ideas? If not, would you like to? TSA free skills sharing session is an informal way to get tips and advice and share ideas  about growing food, whether you have a garden or a window-sill June and Heather will guide you through seasonal advice.

Heather and June, experienced amateur gardeners both, are offering to show you how they grow food in their gardens. This month is your last opportunity this year to explore practical things to do right now in your garden.

The sessions are informal, small, friendly opportunities to meet with gardeners who love to share their enthusiasm and expertise on growing food. These sessions last about one hour and have been very popular this summer.

Depending on the weather and how things are growing, topics likely to be discussed and demonstrated are:

  • Composting and green manure;
  • Seed sowing, pricking out seedlings and transplanting
  • Succession sowing, containers, soil fertility & crop rotation;
  • Watering, mulching and feeding plants;
  • Pests and diseases;
  • Harvesting & over wintering crops.
