Urban Gardening Workshop with the Cloud Gardener and the RHS Urban Show

15th February 12:00 to 13:00
Discover how to transform urban spaces like balconies and terraces into sustainable gardens to promote biodiversity and grow your own food! Also, find out about an exciting upcoming project to develop and showcase a balcony garden at the upcoming Urban Show hosted by the Royal Horticultural Society.

 The Cloud Gardener aims to inspire a new generation of urban gardeners and encourage urban residents to maximise their unique growing spaces like balcony gardens. To promote the benefits to urban wildlife, biodiversity and mental health. Discover more about the Cloud Gardener and their story here.

This workshop takes you through the basics of small space gardening and gives you tips on how to create your own garden at your residence. You might create a garden designed to support pollinators and wildlife, grow your own food, or just create a nice space to relax and take for your mental health.

If you enjoy the workshop you will have the opportunity to sign up for a very exciting project where you will design, and build your own small balcony garden and have the opportunity to showcase your creation at the Royal Horticultural Urban Show.
