Llangwm Ucha, Usk, Monmouthshire (UK): The Kitchen Garden through the year (course)

This intensive, organic vegetable growing course takes place at Allt-y-bela over eight days between February and September 2015. Led by James Clapp, the course is designed for experienced or professional gardeners and aims to bring James' grower skills and design techniques to fine tune your kitchen garden and to challenge conventional assumptions. We will look in depth at the most fundamental aspect of Organic horticulture, the relationship between soil, plant and human health. As the year progresses, you'll see the results of the initial planning, and soil preparation, early propagation, crop choices and methods of planting out at Allt-y-bela, but we'll also have one day, visiting two other gardens, so we can take on board the experiences of other sites.

The course costs £1,560 in total, which includes a tasty wholesome lunch and coffee, tea and cakes. The days run from 9.45 until 4pm. All course days, except for Day 6 are held at Allt-y-bela. On Day 6 we will arrange to meet everyone at the first venue and will suggest near by accommodation for those wishing to travel the night before.
