5 hours Class size 1 to 12     label $110 - $129 ($129 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $117 for 2 guests, $110 for 3+ guests)


Learn how to make a veggie garden that thrives, at these gardening classes in Sydney.

The class is perfect for beginners who are looking to grow their own edible garden at home, as you will learn all the basics from selecting the right plant to creating an ecological veggie garden that includes natives and flowers.

The course content is aimed specifically at small space gardeners, so it’s a must do in Sydney if you’re living in the urban sprawl. Your instructor will take you through the following:

    • The leaf, root and fruit philosophy of edible gardening;
    • Hints and tips on getting the most out of your containers;
    • Where to grow what vegetables;
    • Assessing your microclimate and space;
    • Vertical gardens;
    • Plant requirements and how they affect container gardens;
    • Raised garden beds;
    • Different types of soil;
    • Container gardening and common pitfalls;
    • Seeds vs seedlings and veggie patch layout;
    • Heirloom vs hybrid vs GMO;
    • Types of plants suited to container gardens;
    • Herbs, edible flowers, bush tucker (native edibles) and dwarf fruit trees;
    • Seasonality of plants;
    • Organic fertilising regimes;
    • Dealing with weeds and disease;
    • Watering, transpiration and mulching;
    • Planting and harvesting for year-round abundance;
    • Beneficial insects;
    • Composting and worm farming.

By the end of the class you will be confident growing, designing and eating your very own vegetable garden!

We must have learned about 20 things we can do better in our small home garden. Great class, with a teacher who knows what she's talking about. Would recommend to any aspiring gardener.
