"Gardening in small spaces" course

The community farm is currently running a "Gardening in small spaces" course on Saturday mornings, with ten local participants, and yesterday was the third of six sessions. The course is being run by Ian Willsdon, who has many years experience as an organic gardener and allotmenteer, and is a member of the farm's volunteer board of directors.

This photo shows the first session, with participants setting up their one-square-metre raised beds near the cob roundhouse in Home Field, and filling them with municipal compost. Since then plants have begun to go into the beds, and more are being prepared ready.

Many thanks to Ian for volunteering to run this course (and for everything else he does for the farm too!), and for the participants for coming along and getting stuck in.
