Urban Gardening Made Easy

Tomatoes, herbs, edible flowers: how you can transform your own balcony into a leafy urban garden.

Fresh vegetables and herbs from your very own balcony – even in the city, it’s entirely possible to grow and harvest tomatoes, cucumbers and other vegetables with limited space.

As a budding urban gardener, you’ll learn the basics about soil, planters, sunlight and the right seeds in the “Urban gardening made easy” workshop. Experienced gardeners will also introduce the unique characteristics of selected vegetables and herbs including lettuce, carrots, tomatoes and edible flowers.

Finally, you’ll be able to grab your own planter and load it up with seeds and seedlings. After receiving a couple of last-minute care tips, you’ll be free to take your little garden home with you.

You can bring your own planter with you or order one in advance.

A short snack break can also be arranged if desired.
