The second of three spring workshops at Bandstand Beds on Clapham Common.
Is it a weed or a plant?
This is a common question that gardeners ask themselves when expecting seedlings to sprout. We will take a look at what’s growing in the garden and help you distinguish between the weeds and wanted plants. We will also explore natural pest control methods to help you protect your crops without polluting them.

Increasingly we have hot summers and weeks without rain, and it can be a nightmare for gardeners. In this session we will look at practical ways to reduce your need to water plants. We will also brew up some natural fertilisers to use on tomatoes and squashes so they produce tastier and larger fruits.
The Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is a 72-hour internationally recognised training engaging head, heart and hands of participants to discover the principles and techniques of Permaculture.
At Tribewanted Monestevole in Umbria, Italy, we bring learning about Permaculture into its right context. At our sustainable community, not only will you become an accredited permaculturist, but you'll be able to put in practice all the theories on the permaculture gardens, urban gardens, with the animals and in the local kitchen.
Learn the basics of Permaculture Design on this two-day Introduction to Permaculture and be ready to try it out in your garden, your workplace and your life.
Permaculture is concerned with what truly matters, our most basic human needs, from clean water and healthy food to companionship and belonging, purpose and self-actualisation. It is a design approach that uses patterns and principles from natural ecosystems to help us meet our needs in cooperation with people and planet.
"It has completely changed my perspective towards every aspect of my life: my health, my relationship with family and friends, my relationship to the planet."
