Edible Gardens

Community Gardening Training Programme


Take part

If you’d like to take part in our Community Gardening Training Programme, and learn to set up your own Edible Garden as part of our network, you can sign up for our next training cycle which will commence in October.


The programme features four training sessions, with a range of classroom-style learning, hands-on gardening experience, and the chance to connect with other people who are growing-their-own across Oxford. Weekday sessions take place in the evenings.

Programme schedule:

  • 27th October: Designing your garden space

  • 1st November: Gardening, Community and Activism

  • 10th November: Planning your year

  • 15th November: How to keep your garden growing

Participants in the programme will receive ongoing support and advice in managing their gardens, and have access to ongoing training and network events. If you have any queries, please email
