Hands on Gardening Learning Holidays
We offer complete packages with accommodation, lunch and hands on learning
with personal tuition. Hands on learning holidays are designed to be
fun as well as educational.
We are happy for you to spend all day on the site, or visit other places of interest. East Kent is surrounded by wonderful countryside, and many places of historical interest. There is an abundance of things to do and places to visit as well as a wide choice of traditional pubs and eating places.
Stays will typically be two nights in Bed and Breakfast accommodation or 4 or 5 nights in either B&B or self catering. Costs are all inclusive, covering accommodation, tuition, lunch and even taking home some goodies. Included in a 5 night stay is free, optional one night B&B return visit later in the season to re-visit your planting and harvest the results.
Small groups of four to six people will be catered for so that hands on tuition is one to one. If you want to come as a single person and meet others, see the next web page - meet and learn holidays.
Lunch is part of the package, made up as far as possible from our own Green & Local produce. Weather permitting its will be taken outdoors. A glass of local wine from the nearby Barnsole vineyard will be an option to fruit juice.
We will make sure you do not leave empty handed – you can take away a ‘goody bag’ containing some plants, seeds, cuttings as well as a few freshly cut flowers and veggies.
Costs are £40 to £80 per person per day depending on numbers and choice of accommodation. Please email us for a price, stating: Number of adults, number of juniors (under 18), number of nights, accommodation preference: Self catered or B&B and preferred date of arrival.
