The Edible Garden – Vegtables


We are tremendously excited to run this popular course in the organic gardens of the Ferme de Budé in Petit-Saconnex, Geneva. Created in the 1950s this wonderful garden is nestled between a school and tall apartment buildings in the heart of the international community in Geneva.

This two-hour workshop will bring to life a variety of fresh vegetables for your kitchen. It will include a wide range of practical techniques including identifying the most productive vegetables for this area, seed sowing, successional sowing, weed, pest and disease identification and control techniques. What would you like to grow in your vegetable plot this year?

Student will gain hands-on experience of planting seeds into seed trays, learning the best methods of thinning and transplant seedlings, and discovering the advantages of buying plant plugs. Students will take home pots filled with newly planted vegetables to be transplanted into their own vegetable gardens when the time comes.

As on all our courses a little background preparation is essential. Students will be requested to bring A4 size printed photographs of their existing gardens and areas of concern to faciliate a more personal experience.

This workshop will be run outdoors, we will spend some time in the barn store but we will spend most of our time in the vegetable garden. We strongly recommend weather appropriate clothing and shoes as the workshop will run regardless of the weather.

A mid-morning snack will be provided.
