What Will You Learn?

Take the Urban Food Gardening Diploma Course and you’ll learn how to create a garden almost anywhere - from a window sill to a community garden. This course will show you how you can grow your own food and give you the tools to do so.

You’ll learn how you can safely turn almost any space into a garden and the environmental and social benefits of doing so.

We’ll explore when and where to grow particular crops, planting techniques, and the benefits of using compost. You’ll be guided through the techniques used to create window gardens, vertical gardens, and food forests, and how to use hydroponics, guerrilla gardening and more.

You’ll discover the steps to take if you want to join or start a community garden and look through real case studies of successful projects.

Most of all, the course aims to inspire and inform you about the transformative potential of urban food gardening.

In the course you will:

  • Explore the benefits of urban food gardening
  • Work through practical, actionable tutorials suited to your garden type
  • Learn which crops you should to grow, when to plant them, and how to care for and protect them
