We ran the first courses in the UK in 2016. A number of UK GreenFriends are now able in turn to run the course, and we hope to be running more in the future.
The next course will be in Cheddar, Somerset over three-days from the Friday 21st to Sunday the 23rd April 2017. This course and venue is provided for free and there a small charge to cover meals and refreshments. There is also a modest charge for accommodation at the local Youth Hostel if required. Teaching materials are provided during the course, but if you want to take the 100-page manual away there will also be a small charge. Please register your interest here.
How much does it cost?
The course itself is taught for free by volunteers because we feel it is important to promote growing your own vegetables (and eating them of course) because of all positive personal and global benefits this brings. Depending on how and where we run the course there may be basic charges to cover costs of a venue and refreshments, and if residential for food and accommodation.
