Nothing is better for you and your loved ones than home-grown vegetables – organic, and as fresh as can be! Our 4 week – 8 module certification course that will equip you with the skills required to transform your balcony, terrace or ground into a source of health and nutrition – as well as a source of joy and happiness!

Through practical work on a farm and field visits you will learn the entire cycle of urban farming: from seeding, planting, through weeding, fertilizing, and pest management, to harvesting, and composting. Through working on some small practical projects, you will understand how to design your terrace, create the potting mix you need, how to take care for your beds and chose the companion plants which will keep your plants happy and healthy-
essentially everything you need to go home-grown.
