One Day Horticultural Course – No Dig Gardening @ Dunmore Country School

Our One Day sustainable Horticultural Course is a great way to discover and learn horticulture in one day, with our intensive, no labour and no dig gardening system on lazy beds. We use raw materials to feed the soil and it helps to fight climate change by storing carbon into the soil in a healthy and productive living system.
