Kouga Urban Harvest is running workshops in Pretoria on creating and maintaining organic food gardens. The aim of the course is to prepare you to create your own self sufficient food garden and we will cover everything from planning the garden to harvesting.

On the course we will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Permaculture/Organic Gardening
  • Choosing your site and designing your beds
  • Preparing the beds/Container gardening
  • How to plant: Crop rotation and Companion Planting
  • Mulching and Recycling
  • Watering- Harvesting/Soil building

The course will be a combination of theory and practice, with all of the topics being illustrated in a already existing vegetable garden. Persons who will benefit are those who grow their own vegetables or would like to start, persons who maintain community food garden projects or would like to start one, gardeners and small-scale farmers.
