Growing our own salad and herbs in a small space gives us the biggest reward for our time and
effort in the garden. By focussing on what is best fresh and what costs the most to buy, we get
the satisfaction of eating homegrown every day. Small can mean selective, succulent and
successful. There’s lots to learn and lots to like about gardening this way.
Starting small, growing close to your kitchen, watering easily, choosing herbs and leaves we
like, do I start with seeds or seedlings?
A Sustainable Backyards bite-sized workshop. An hour of inspiration to get your garden
growing. Although this workshop is free thanks to sponsorship from Hastings District Council,
please register via Eventfinda to secure your place, but only if you are definitely going to
attend. Numbers are limited, no door sales. Please arrive at the centre 15 minutes before the
start to allow yourself time to park and get settled in.
