Event name: MID WINTER in the KITCHEN GARDEN with MICKEY 24 July 2021


Join Mickey Robertson in her Kitchen Garden at Glenmore - a working garden full of constant activity, which changes almost daily through all its phases of growth and yield. There is much to learn - whatever month, whichever season. The art of Kitchen Gardening is to be found in spontaneity (as well as practicality!) and in attending kitchen garden days with Mickey, you will grasp the beating heart of the garden, the full circle of vegetable gardening and glean a true understanding of absolute seasonality.

Discussion and example on the days will encompass whichever tasks are relevant to the moment - from the care and nurture of all veg during their growing season (using organic principles of course), to the upheaval of crop rotation, staking and support structures, soil, compost, watering, tonics and seed collecting, through to the aesthetics and design of a Kitchen Garden. The days simply reflect all that is relevant to the season and moment, so you can absorb the information at an unhurried pace.

Mickey suggests it's in the Kitchen Garden that you may make your biggest gardening mistakes, as they will be short-lived; for the Kitchen Garden in particular is today, gone tomorrow, either eaten or expired and the time will soon be right to begin the entire process with your newfound wisdom all over again.
