Welcome to Learn Organic Gardening,
garden based training courses in Staffordshire.
The garden has been certified by the Soil Association since 1989.
A warm welcome awaits you. Situated on the edge of Cannock Chase, in an Edwardian garden, a small but wide range of organic fruit and vegetables are grown from seed. We rely on our own compost and green manures, but some horse manure comes from a local stable to add nutrients to the soil. All the waste from the garden gets recycled into recreating compost and fertility for the whole garden. All the lessons are conducted on the theory of organic gardening in a conservatory. There are two greenhouses and a polytunnel for wet weather teaching, two acres of lawns, vegetable gardens, herb garden, woodland fruit trees and an old English apple orchard for practical sessions. The classes are small ensuring individual attention to assess personal gardening needs. Organic gardening course available throughout the seasons for all abilities. Day courses also available. We are very passionate about what we teach and have over 21 years experience in organic gardening.
If you want to learn about organic gardening then we can get you started and show you all you need to know with our 3 seasonal courses. Our course modules are divided into 3 sections, spring, summer and autumn/winter enabling us to give you practical hands on training that relates to real life gardening. This seasonal approach means that our training methods are not just classroom based theory - our practical sessions will give you meaningful training, covering all you need to know. The three seasonal courses consist of nine, three hour sessions (10am to 1pm). Please use the links on the right to see course dates, syllabus and prices.
We also run day courses for those who can't commit to a full nine week course. We can offer one to one training, or equally if you have a group of people who would like to book a day or a number of days then please use the link to the right for further information. If you have specific areas of learning that you would like us to cover, then please get in touch.
We take a friendly, informal approach and hope that our attendees thoroughly enjoy the time they spend with us. Please make sure that you bring suitable clothing and footwear suitable for our 'hands on' courses. Refreshments will be provided and if you plan to stay over in the Staffordshire area we can advise on places to stay.
We look forward to seeing you.
