All of my courses are being held at my smallholding in the wild, wild west of Wales (otherwise known as near to New Quay in very scenic Ceredigion) and will showcase the many benefits and delights of wildlife-friendly organic grow-your-own.

During each course there will also be ample opportunity for questions and time to meet our resident pet (and indeed very friendly) sheep, ducks, chickens and Shetland ponies. You’ll no doubt get to spot many different varieties of garden bird, frogs and pollinating insects. Not forgetting the red kites and buzzards that soar gracefully overhead.

There will be refreshments, a tasty vegetarian lunch and the opportunity to sample produce around growing season availability. Additionally, all full-day attendees will get a free gift from one of our corporate partners and plants to take home.

Afternoon only sessions are also available on each of the course dates for experienced gardeners just wanting to brush up on my popular crop rotation alternative, self seeding and some climate change essentials. Prices start from £35 (or £50 including lunch & produce to take home). Please contact me to find out more.


Borne out of popular demand (people kept asking me to run a dedicated course on the subject last year), the day covers everything you could possibly need to know to get great results growing under plastic.

The action packed course runs 9.30 through till 3 and includes tasty treats, refreshments and lunch. The next polytunnel growing course dates for 2018 are:
11th August,  13th October, and the  10th of November

Ceredigion is a delightful county in the heart of Wales, with 50 miles of unspoilt coast and beaches, pretty harbour towns, local food markets and historic castles and wildlife walks galore. It also offers some of the best opportunities for seal and dolphin spotting in the country. So if you’d like to make a weekend or indeed holiday around your visit then i can recommend accommodation locally.

Why Ceredigion really is Wales’ best-kept secret
