Introduction to Organic Vegetable Growing

Introduction to vegetables course

March 14 at 10:00 - 12:30

Cost: £40 – 70

Aimed at aspiring, beginning and improving vegetable gardeners, this session looks at what vegetables are best to grow in the north of England with emphasis on:

  • designing and planning a productive garden
  • basic techniques for growing common crops
  • rotation
  • how easy and worthwhile particular crops are to grow.

We’re delighted that Tony Chalcraft will be joining us again in 2020.

Book in advance for both this course AND the Advanced Vegetable Gardening course on May 6th and receive a £10 discount.

Using organic methods, Tony has grown just about every type of fruit and vegetable that can be grown in the North of England. He specialises in having fresh produce all through the year, mainly grown outside, but also using greenhouses and a polytunnel. It is this expertise that make his courses here so popular.

All workshops will mainly be held indoors, but you will get an opportunity to see the vegetable garden here at Stillingfleet Lodge as a reference point.


All courses include entry to the garden plus welcome coffee and biscuits. Unless stated,  materials are provided and you will leave each workshop with plenty of reference information.

Please note that workshop fees cannot be refunded if cancelled less than 7 days prior to date of workshop.
