Gardening Courses

With National Botanic Garden of Wales

Increase your gardening skills and explore how you can improve biodiversity and start growing food in your garden.

CAT have teamed up with the National Botanic Garden of Wales (NBGW) to run a new suite of courses as part of the NBGW Growing the Future project, which aims to “champion Welsh horticulture, plants for pollinators, the protection of wildlife and the virtues of growing plants for food, fun, health and well-being.”

Course tutor Ben Wilde said:

“We’re in the sixth mass extinction and we need everyone to do what they can, with what they have, to help replenish biodiversity and keep our wildlife alive. These courses are a great way to gain knowledge and skills on boosting biodiversity and growing your own food that will be easily transferable to your home or community.”
