We're a network of Edible Gardens across Oxford, helping students to set up their own edible gardens and learn to grow-their-own. Sign up to our 2019 training programme to get involved!
Community Gardening Training Programme: Growing for all in Oxford
In 2019 we'll be running a training programme to help people to set up their own community gardens across Oxford. We think growing local, affordable fruit and veg should be available to all people in Oxford! Join the growing revolution and help give back to the community through gardening. Our gardens will feed back into the local community by donating food to good causes and supporting other non-profits that focus on food sustainability.
The programme will involve five training sessions across January and February, featuring a range of classroom-style sessions, hands-on gardening experience, and the chance to get to know other people who are growing-their-own across Oxford. Sessions will take place at the Oxford Hub on Thursdays, 5-6pm.
20th January: Welcome event
24th January: Designing a garden space
7th February: Community impact
21st February: Planning your year
7th March: How to keep your garden growing
