The Growing Academy

What is the Growing Academy?

The aim of the Academy is to teach and support anyone wanting to learn about growing fruit, vegetables and traditional allotment flowers. We welcome beginners, as well as more experienced gardeners, in sharing the process from sowing seed right the way through to harvest. We will also advise and guide on all things allotment and growing related, as well as providing guest speakers and classes for local community groups.
