Are you working with a group that is growing food to eat?
How to run a gardenng club is our Train the Trainers course. We meet for 8 monthy twilight sessions across the growing season. There is a mixture of theory and practical activities with plenty of opportunities for sharing and reflecting on your experiences with other participants.
The course is based around seasonal garden tasks.
Each month we will look at a different gardening activity.
There are pleanty of resources we can share to use with your group, from session plans and worksheets to where to source growing materials, plants and seeds.
Topics like health and saftey and managment planning are woven into each session.
There will be opportunity to visit a Food4Families session and to lead a small group activity.
We have a mixture of people who run regular growing sessions all over Reading. You can meet with like minded others and share hints and tips weather you work in a school, public allotment, community garden, residential or NHS setting.
