“If you can teach your children to love eating fruit and vegetables, it’s been proven time and time again that it helps them achieve more at school, and sets them up for healthy lifetime habits. There’s no better way to do this, than igniting a child’s passion for growing their own produce with you.” Alex Mitchell, journalist, acclaimed author, and mother to two children
MyGardenSchool is excited to have teamed up with Mumsnet Academy to bring you this unique course with writer and gardener, Alex Mitchell. Alex explains: ”Over the past 10 years I have filled my little city garden with delicious fresh crops from salad to herbs sweetcorn to strawberries. I have learnt what works for and what doesnt, what crops you absolutely must grow and which ones really arent worth the bother. Using my personal experience I will take you through a year in the edible garden from how to assess your garden for planting to preparing the soil to choosing the best crops to grow.”
