What Will You Learn?

The Organic Gardening Diploma Course offers practical instruction, backed by solid knowledge. You’ll learn everything that you need to know to be able to grow your own fresh organic produce without the use of artificial fertilisers, pesticides and chemicals.

You will discover what it means to “go organic” in the context of gardening and what the benefits of this are, both to your health and the environment. Armed with practical advice and information you will learn how to create your own organic garden. Each stage of the process is explained: choosing the right patch, understanding the ideal conditions for growth, choosing what to grow, creating and using a gardening map, and practicing proper crop rotation.

Soil! You’ll discover everything you need to know about soil - learning what is the most suitable for your garden by testing its type, pH level and nutrient value and understanding the importance of proper drainage. The quality of your soil can be enhanced using various types of organic matter. The course provides instructions on how to create various homemade fertilisers from household waste and items you may already have in your cupboards.

For a successful crop, you need to consider the various stages of planting your organic garden. The Organic Gardening Diploma Course guides you through the proper methods of preparing a garden bed and sowing seeds. If you’d prefer a head-start, the options for buying plants are discussed, including where to source them from.

There is plenty of choice when deciding what to plant in your organic garden. To give you a better understanding of what is involved with cultivating various plants, the course talks you through the main categories of plant and what is required to grow them successfully. You will learn how to nurture the growth of vegetables, herbs, berries, fruits, nuts, and landscape plants.

Every gardener has two natural enemies: weeds and pests. The Organic Gardening Diploma Course teaches you how to deal with both organically. You’ll learn about weeds and why they pose a problem and the various methods of getting rid of them, such as hand weeding, hoeing, mulching, solarizing, flaming and organic herbicide. There is also a rundown of the various types of weeding tools available to you.

As for pests, you’ll learn about the different kinds that may infest your garden. You’ll explore preventative options and learn how to deal with those already present in your garden. However, not all insects and invertebrates are pests. Some are beneficial to your garden; this course will teach you the difference.

Weeds and pests aside, there are even more threats to your garden that this course will make you aware of and show you how to deal with. Through studying the Organic Gardening Diploma Course, you’ll learn how to spot, control and prevent various plant diseases and deter animal intruders humanely..

Once your organic garden is established it is important to maintain it properly. You’ll learn about correct watering techniques and the equipment you can use to ensure your garden gets the right amount of water. You’ll explore maintenance tool options for various garden types and what your weekly gardening routine should involve.

The Organic Gardening Diploma Course runs through each of the four seasons and provides guidance on what you should be doing in each to maintain your garden’s health.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
