Twilight Gardening – July & August 2018


Join us on Tuesday evenings in late July and August for a series of Twilight Gardening sessions. Each week we will explore a different topic, learning how to grow something edible (see the full schedule below).

The sessions will run from 6:30pm to approximately 9pm. We will start with a cup of tea or coffee and a bit of learning, then do some practical gardening (sowing, transplanting, weeding, harvesting and everything in between) and finally, we’ll all sit down together for a simple, but delicious homemade evening meal.

We hope this will be a super fun way for us to share some of the things we have learned developing The Edible Flower Kitchen Garden and bring together gardening amateurs and enthusiasts for a lovely evening of gardening, learning and having lots of craic.

These workshops are inspired by the Twilight Gardening Sessions run by The Skip Garden in King’s Cross where Erin worked as the cafe chef and Jo was a frequent volunteer. Thanks to everyone at The Skip Garden for all the inspiration!
