Become a New Urban Farmer with Celia Brooks Brown
From plot to plate: A year on the allotment
Pop along to Petersham Nurseries between 10 and 11am on Saturday 15th May and put your ‘growing your own’ questions to a passionate Urban Farmer, expert author & food journalist, Celia Brooks Brown.
“Seasoned gardeners will no doubt have already been pottering around getting the growing year off to an early start. However, if you are a novice or gardening lightweight, there is still plenty of time to get cracking on your 2010 harvest. Whether you’ve got an allotment, home garden space, a few patio pots, or merely a windowsill, it’s time to get ready, get set…” Celia Brooks Brown
Following the recent publication of her latest book NEW URBAN FARMER (Quadrille) we are delighted to be joined by Celia Brooks Brown as she enthusiastically shares her gardening expertise, knowledge and skills picked up since taking on her allotment plot in November 2005 and learnt through a combination of hard graft, trial and error, and shared tips from the other allotmenteers.
Celia writes regularly for The Times online and has a column titled "Grow to Eat" for BBC Good Food Magazine. New Urban Farmer has already been hailed as an “indispensable guide for wannabe kitchen gardeners" in all of us.
Share her knowledge of investing in the right soil, companion planting and gain top tips to start your anti-slug campaign. We hope you will leave with the inspiration to get growing, whether it be carrots, onions, courgettes or cauliflowers.
