Plant Drawing

Exploring our relationships with plants and developing new ones through drawing, mark making and observation. The aim is not to make perfect plant drawings but to enjoy both the process of making of the art work and being in nature. There will be a chance at the end and throughout the workshop to share and collaborate with the group. Participants should bring their own art materials and some will be provided.

Dress for the weather as we will be outside. This workshop is aimed at adults.

Garden weeds: Food, medicine & fertiliser

FREE PLACES AVAILABLE FOR ELL VOLUNTEERS

Most of the weeds that seem to drive gardeners crazy are, in actuality, fantastic plants with a multitude of uses - from food and medicine to important allies in combating pests and diseases in the garden.

In this session, we’ll discuss how to utilise these wonderful resources that pop up in our gardens rather than treating them as a useless nuisance.

Event type: 

Beginners Botany for Food Growers

FREE PLACES AVAILABLE FOR ELL VOLUNTEERS

The science behind gardening is not only fascinating, but understanding it can also help us to support our plants in growing healthier and more productive.

In this session, we will explore the functions of different plant parts and how they relate to good gardening practices; look at what botanical names can tell us; and learn to identify different plant families and how that can help us as growers and foragers. Be prepared for a fair deal of mind-boggling plant geekery as well as hands-on plant examination.
