Brocton Leys Organic Gardening Courses
Location: Brocton, Stafford
10% discount for SA members on organic gardening courses available throughout the seasons for all abilities.
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. Run by Beverley Squires who has 21 years’ organic gardening experience plus teaching certification in a unique garden environment.
