Sustainable Gardening & Biodiversity: free training courses

Due to unprecedented demand, Cork County Council is delighted to announce they will be running an additional online Sustainable Gardening Course on Wednesday evenings from 7-8pm for 5 weeks. The course is suitable for beginners and more advanced gardeners alike.   Horticulturist Aoife Munn will be delivering this course which will be lively, interactive and covers everything from pollinator planting, creating wildflower areas to growing vegetables and much more.  The course is particularly interesting for Tidy Towns groups, Allotment Holders, Green Schools Coordinators and those wishing to really reduce their impact on the planet.

The course will run every Wednesday evening at 7pm for 5 weeks beginning 9th February 2022.

Numbers are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Register online at the following link,
