Plant it   grow it   harvest it   eat it

Friday 6th August 2010 | 7.30 pm | The Greenhouse, St. Andrew St., Dublin (map) | €6.50 (Buy online), €4 for students / unwaged, free for members

The burgeoning interest in growing your own food may be recent, but Klaus Laitenberger has more than twenty years' experience to share.  Drawing on his years working as Head Gardener at the Organic Centre in Co. Leitrim, and restoring the garden at Lissadell House, Co. Sligo, Klaus has distilled his first-hand knowledge into an essential primer on growing vegetables for food, aimed at first time and experienced gardeners, called Vegetables For the Irish Garden (read more).  Although our climate is broadly similar to that in the UK, there are subtle differences that you are not likely to glean from books aimed at the UK market; Klaus's book is written specifically for sowing and planting, harvesting and storing vegetables in Ireland.

Klaus will be signing copies of his book at this event.  Read a review by Jane Powers in the Irish Times, published Saturday, July 17, 2010.
