Winter Kitchen Garden Care

October 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

It’s easy to start a garden, anyone can do it. The difficult part is to keep it going. Garden Care forms the crux of gardening, and Edible Routes is here to help you with it!

This workshop will cover all about manuring, watering, weeding, mulching, and harvesting. Maintenance is your classroom of learning. While carrying out maintenance tasks, we will develop the observation skills required for successful gardening.

Ongoing tasks consist primarily of watering and weeding, with some secondary and seasonal tasks as well. But such tasks shouldn’t be seen as an additional burden to your schedule. The daily visit to our garden helps in many ways, from detecting early bug infestations to learning about the specific way each plant grows. We will share expert tips to make these tasks doable and fun!

This is the third session of the 4-part series: “My Edible Winter Garden”. Through this series, you will delve into individual aspects of kitchen garden maintenance, especially during the winters.

Focus of the Workshop:

Manuring – why is it important, how to do it at home
Mulching – how to retain soil moisture and biodiversity
Weeding – how to optimise the growth of your edible plants
Watering techniques – one of the most important and most overlooked part of gardening
Harvesting – know when the fruit is ripe enough to harvest
