Beginners' gardening

JULIANSTOWN and District Community Association are delighted to be running a new beginners gardening course, which is being funded by the Louth and Meath Education Training Board. It's free to all and all you need is an interest in gardening and lots of enthusiasm!

The course will start on Saturday, February 8, from 10 a.m. until 12.30 p.m. in the Julianstown Community Garden and every following Wednesday and Saturday (weather permitting). It will be covering an introduction to basic gardening skills and techniques including propagation and the dividing of perennial plants, pruning, how to take cuttings; grow vegetables and general garden maintenance. This is a very enjoyable and fun way to get outdoors, meet new people, be active and learn something new.
