I have been teaching courses for Kent Adult Education services in Sevenoaks and Tonbridge since 2010.  All courses are taught in small groups, maximum 10 students, usually not more than 8, and are classroom based with plenty of discussion and questions.   Whether you are a beginner or want to add some new skills to your existing experience there is a class for you!

I am always happy to run a workshop for you and a few friends in your own garden or a convenient venue.  Contact me to talk about topics.

Many of the courses are run as individual sessions, either a morning or an evening – ideal if you are looking for an introduction or to add to your gardening skills.   GYO and Garden Design are also each offered as a short course so that you can build up your knowledge week by week.

All courses are administered by Kent Adult Education Services at : KAE website.  Click the link to see more details and book.   Contact me if you want to find out more about any course or discuss the creation of a dedicated session on a gardening topic of your choice.
