Plotting the Future  - One Day Courses at Debdale Eco Centre

  • Getting Started – How to get your area ready for planting
  • Your Soil– Understand different types of soil and how to make the most of it for your growing
  • Planning your patch– How to encourage biodiversity and sustainability
  • Organic Vegetable Growing– From the very basic seed sowing and propogation techniques to more advanced vegetable growing for the trickier vegetables
  • Organic Fruit Growing – How to grow fruit in small spaces
  • Maintaining and developing your produce– How to look after, harvest, and store your produce

Who is this course for?

We offer tailored versions of this course, that are aimed towards:

  • Local residents across Manchester, Stockport and Tameside
  • New and prospective allotment holders
  • Housing or residents associations

Allotment holders – The allotment course (also known as ‘Plotting for the Future) sessions are primarily for new allotment holders to give them the confidence, skills and knowledge to maintain a sustainable, productive and well kept plot. However, we find that existing plot holders also ask for training which we are more than welcome to provide.
