Rainbow Grow LGBTIQ+ Gardening workshops
March and April 2023
Ever wanted to have a green thumb? Would you like to learn the fundamentals of gardening in a welcoming and inclusive space?
If so then our Rainbow Grow LGBTIQ+ Gardening workshops are for you (or for someone you know)!
We are running a series of workshops to teach you the basics of gardening, bed preparation and plant care. This will include both theory and hands-on practice.
Each group will have their own patch in the garden to prepare and plant out with little seedlings. When the seedlings have grown (6-8 weeks), we will come back to cook up a delicious meal to celebrate the harvest.
Workshop a) Garden bed preparation
Learning about soil, composting, bed preparation, and garden tools.
Workshop b) Planting and plant care
