Join Rachel for one of our new Patrick’s Patch workshops
Rachel’s Spring workshops start indoors with coffee and
gardening-talk in our comfortable outbuilding in Patrick’s Patch.
Rachel will share useful background gardening knowledge and plenty of tips from Patrick’s Patch. Then there will be hands-on practical sessions out in the garden to make sure you’re equipped with the skills you need for successful gardening in 2017. All workshops are suited to beginner or intermediate gardeners.
It is essential to pre-book as there is a maximum of 10 adults. Please book below.
The cost is £15 per person, which includes tea/coffee & biscuits and a 15% off voucher to have lunch in Steff’s Kitchen. The workshops start at 10.30am and finish at 12.30pm.
If we do not have enough people to run the course successfully, we reserve the right for it to be cancelled and any money paid will be refunded.
