• Food Growing Courses at Northfield Ecocentre

    At the Northfield Ecocentre we are preparing both of our gardens for planting. We have pots in the greenhouses with little green shoots already.
    We have big plans for Masefield Community Garden this year which will include adding a class room, compost toilet and fruit tree nursery. Our fabulous team of volunteers are there every Wednesday 10am to 2pm. The garden is open at that time for anyone to visit and look around, or take a book to enjoy the warm weather that is coming!
    As part of our initiative to create an Incredible Edible Northfield we are running a range of courses this spring to help you get started growing your own food, or develop your skills.
    The courses we have on offer at the moment include:

    • Constructing Raised Beds, 8th March, 2pm – 4pm. £10.
