Included in this Autumn course

This short course is aimed at people who planted some crops earlier in the year, as we move into the new
season and begin to plan for next year. Although there are plenty of crops that can be purchased and planted for the Autumn.

Over these five weeks we will be focusing on the seasonal jobs: collecting and storing seed, harvesting,
cooking or storing crops, planting new seasonal crops to fill the “hungry gap,” propagating our own plants for
next year, preparing for the cold weather, and caring for and storing our tools.

We will also continue with some garden making projects – including a wormery, and there will be in interactive activities, weekly Q&A
sessions with our guest gardening expert, Emily, competitions and a virtual produce show
