The Bath Gardening School - Inspirational New Courses

 

 

 

 

The Bath Gardening School launches with new Spring-Summer calendar

 

The brand new Bath Gardening School (www.thebathgardeningschool.com) is proud to announce its first programme of Spring-Summer courses.  The Bath Gardening School offers gardeners – of all ages and experience – the opportunity to learn new skills in a sociable environment over the course of a day.  Courses for the Spring-Summer programme, which starts in April 2011, include the English Country Garden, Planning a Kitchen Garden for Beginners, Garden Photography and A Beginners Guide to Beekeeping.  All the courses have been designed to be informal and interactive, so that whatever your level of experience, you will learn something new, enjoy the day and be able to share ideas with like-minded people.

 

Professional gardeners who are experts in their field teach the courses. Teachers include high profile gardeners such as Gardeners’ World James Alexander-Sinclair, author Anne Wareham and Mark Diacono, Head Gardener at River Cottage, and local faces such as Louis Hodgkin of the Bath Beekeeping Association and no-dig advocate Charles Dowding.

 

Landscape designer and founder of the Bath Gardening School, Emma Bond, explains, “Last year, I realised that there are no outlets for people to learn about gardening in a friendly and relaxing environment in Bath.  I really believe that gardening should be fun and accessible – and most of all, it should be easy.  The courses will show people the many different things they can do in their garden, whether it’s turning it into a beautiful as well as productive kitchen garden or introducing people to beekeeping for the first time.”

 

Held in the Interpretation Centre in the heart of the Botanical Gardens in Royal Victoria Gardens, each one-day course includes coffee, tea and homemade cakes throughout the day and a delicious lunch, either in popular local foodie pub, the Marlborough Tavern (in April and May), or as a picnic in the park provided by Bath’s Made by Ben (in June and July).

 

Each course costs £99.05 and a full calendar is below.  For more information and bookings please see www.thebathgardeningschool.com.  As the courses make great presents, gift vouchers are also available.

About the Bath Gardening School

The Bath Gardening School was established by landscape designer Emma Bond, to offer gardening enthusiasts the opportunity to learn new skills in a one-day course.  Emma has run a garden design and landscaping business, Bath Garden Design, in Bath for over ten years and is experienced in gardening, design, planning and horticulture.  When she realised that there were no outlets in which keen gardeners could learn more about gardening in an interactive setting, she set up the Bath Gardening School to teach new skills to gardening enthusiasts in a friendly and unpretentious environment.

"Just got back from the pub so apologies if this is waffle, but does it fit between the height adjustment lever and the mower chassis? To stop the machine collapsing when you pull the height adjustment 'pin' out of the chassis? "
