Free courses with Court Lane Allotments

We are offering free courses in horticultural and gardening techniques over the coming months. They will be an integral part of our successful bid for a Lottery Fund grant to develop the Community Garden; hence our ability to offer them free of charge. The courses and workshops will be led by specialists in various fields, including Frank Hardy, who was Vice Principal of Pershore Horticultural College.

Places are limited but you can request up to 2 places for as many courses as you wish. All courses will be at Court Lane Allotment unless otherwise stated. Below is details of workshops and courses available. There is a sign up form here.
