Above is a recording of an online gardening workshop from Tuesday, 7th of April (you can play it directly on YouTube here). The workshop covers basic spring veg seed sowing tips and reusing your recycling for plant pots and trays. We are planning for more of these to help us cope with life under covid-19 lockdown so please let us know if there’s anything you would like us to cover!
It was presented by Andrea Roach from Transition’s Edible Campus and by Helena Simmons from Ninewells Community Garden. For the Q&A we were joined by Peter Christopher from Tayport Community Garden and Bill Bilson from Strathkiness Community Garden (@bilsonrobert1 on Twitter). Kaska Hempel from Transition/Tayport Community Garden took care of the technical set up.
