Join Rachel and Patrick to learn, and gain confidence in having success with Grow Your Own vegetables.

Informal Zoom calls, helpful videos and hopefully later in the year we will be able to have a drop-in session.  Don't forget to ask us any questions you may have to help you with your gardening this year, see below for details.
