Workshop: Organic gardening, the natural way to grow

The essence of organic growing is to work with nature to promote a complete, healthy, productive and sustainable environment. It involves supporting healthy soils, encouraging wildlife and working creatively alongside nature when growing vegetables. The workshop will cover the practical aspects of planning your vegetable garden, seed sowing, building and maintaining soil health, encouraging biodiversity, using resources responsibly, avoiding the use of harmful chemicals and maintaining a healthy growing area. This workshop is designed to inspire you to reconnect with nature, adopt a more sustainable lifestyle and enjoy the benefits of sowing, growing and eating healthy organic vegetables.

About Marva Lashley: After leaving high school, Marva worked in the amenities department of the local council as a gardener, propagating and maintaining ornamental plants in glasshouses. Her other activities included the interior landscaping of the town hall, the amenities offices and venues that were used for civic functions.

From managing a garden centre to teaching horticulture, she has devoted the past decade to using and sharing her knowledge of organic gardening…… and continues to practice this exciting and satisfying vocation.
