Children and parents can enjoy the summer weather outdoors in the city, learning in fun ways about gardening, food production, and environmental issues. We will supply most of the materials (although we may ask that you bring along a jam jar or two every once in a while!)

The afternoon adult class will help you to get started in the garden.  This course is suitable for complete beginners and will mix practical exercises with some theory (Kathleen promises there will be very little homework).
