Stuff the credit crunch, eat fresh organic food all year round.

What can you do in autumn and winter? Lots!

This short course will focus on seasonal tasks and skills. We will learn the tools and tricks to ensure you can eat from your garden throughout the autumn and winter and get set ready for the next season.

We will cover…

l  Making raised beds.

l  Growing vegetables over winter.

l  Winter salads.

l  Green manures.

l  Fruit bush and tree pruning.

l  More plants for free ; taking cuttings.

l  Seedsaving.

The course will be based in the Eastside Roots Garden at Trinity Arts Centre. The sessions will be a mix of ideas and information indoors, followed by hands-on work in the thriving community garden. We have a poly-tunnel, compost loo, lots of fruit trees and a friendly bunch of volunteers.

The course will run from Sep 17th to Nov 5th.

Classes will be on Thursdays 10-12:30 am.

After the class feel free to go, or you are very welcome to stick around for lunch (bring your own) and then our regular volunteer day in the afternoon, which runs from 1 till 5pm every Thursday.

The course costs £50 (waged) or £25 (unwaged).

To join or find out more, call Tom on 07988 460373, or email

More courses will run in future – look on the website for dates.

Eastside Roots is a ‘not-for-profit’ workers co-op that grows plants and communities. We also manage the community green space next to Stapleton Road Train Station. Get involved!
