Unfortunately due to the current restrictions for COVID 19, we are not offering any courses at Padstow Kitchen Garden for the foreseeable.
If you’ve ever dreamed of growing your own vegetables to create fabulously nutritious meals, why not spend the day with Ross at beautiful Trerethern Farm in Padstow and learn how to establish your own kitchen garden. This fun but informative course is for gardeners of all abilities and no previous experience is required, although a passion for all things green-fingered is a bonus! Former head chef, Ross, will also prepare a scrumptious lunch made with ingredients sourced from the farm.
Ross is keen to tailor the day to suit the participants’ requirements, therefore, over introductory tea/coffee and delicious home-made cake, he will ask each person what it is they would like to learn.
