We are very excited to announce the first of The Agrarian Kitchen’s gardening classes. Gardening Fundamentals is our foundation level gardening class, designed to equip you with the keys to successful food-based gardening. You’ll be introduced to the core skills needed to build and maintain a productive garden and the theory that underpins them. From turning a piece of unused land into a healthy garden patch, to harvesting nutrient-dense fruit and veg, the class will touch on each fundamental step needed for garden success. 

Located in our one-acre walled garden, you’ll see working examples and engage hands-on with every aspect along the learning journey. Practical in nature, the class will be broken into six modules. Starting with the basics of site selection, design and preparation, it will then move into propagation, soil and plant care before we finish with the rewards of bountiful harvests and ongoing maintenance for future success. Amongst the modules we’ll be diving deep into diverse concepts such as composting, pest management, and numerous regenerative techniques to leave your garden in an increasingly productive and healthy state.  You’ll learn deep mulch systems to keep weeding to a bare minimum and design methods to keep hard work short and sharp. Perhaps above all, the class will instill a set of practices that will yield results and give you a set of skills you can apply to any piece of land you find yourself tending.
