– What’s the difference between a kyaari and a raised bed?

Join us at Farm 8 to answer all these questions and more in this practical workshop on growing vegetables, fruits and herbs at home.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn the basics of planning and running a kitchen garden, from seeding, weeding and harvesting to pest management and composting.

We’ll teach you about potting mix, seeding, weeding, harvesting, companion planting – basically everything about to go homegrown. We guarantee you will not leave this workshop without getting your hands muddy.

What you’ll take away from this workshop:

Confidence to start your own edible garden
Excitement about plants
2 sapling pots: one seeded, one saplinged
Your nails full of mitti!
