We welcomed volunteers from every programme this month with extra training days to kick start the food growing season.
Fuelled by cups of tea and free comfrey roots, there were four courses over two weekends filled with horticultural topics requested by Master Gardeners, including advanced sowing and ways to keep growing media fertile in containers. We also focused on how active listening skills help mentor a household or community group to grow food successfully. We then shared the many different resources available to volunteers.
Many thanks to all the Master Gardeners for our enthusiastic discussions! Special thanks to volunteers who took to the stage to share stories, our local community venues, and of course – to our co-ordinators Kate, Gabbie, Kate, and Fiona for all their hard work.
