Cumbria Adult Education Workshops – Grow More, Grow Better!

Growing Well is running a series of eight workshops between October and March, aimed at introducing you to a range of horticultural subjects that will give you the confidence, skills and knowledge to grow more successfully and productively, whether in your fruit, vegetable or flower garden.

Workshops will be delivered by Hazel Sharples, our Training Coordinator who is a qualified teacher and highly experienced in horticulture. Full of enthusiasm, knowledge and practical skills, she is keen to pass these on to you in a friendly and approachable way.


Courses will be based in our Training yurt on the Growing Well site which is at Low Sizergh Barn. Free parking is available in the Farm Shop car park. Growing Well site is accessed via a 150m gravel path from the car park, along the Farm trail.

What you need to bring

Please wear sturdy shoes or walking boots and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions. Bear in mind that most workshops will have a practical element to them where we may be working outdoors.

The yurt classroom can get very warm with the wood burner on, so several thin layers are preferable to one thick one.

You may wish to bring a notebook and pen, and your glasses if you need them.

Tea and coffee is available at a small cost.

8 workshops – Full fee £81.60, Concessions £40.80.

If you don’t wish to attend the whole series you can book on to any of the course individually.
