An online interactive workshop that provides an introduction to the basics of planting and gardening with our gardener-in-residence, Polly Rowley-Sams.

We’ve all spent a lot of time in our homes and neighbourhoods since last year and with summer finally here, now is a great time to try your hand at planting and growing.  No matter what space you have available, from gardens to balconies, windowsills to walls, Polly will help you to get started with home growing!

In these interactive Zoom-led workshops, Polly will cover topics such as the basic tools needed, planning out what you want to grow and how to plant and take care of your seedlings. These workshops would suit people completely new to gardening as well as budding novice gardeners who are keen to expand their knowledge.

You are welcome to book for just one week or for all four. To reserve your space, email Rachel at cultureconnects@dublincitycouncilculturecompany.ie

Please note, places are free but limited so early booking is advised.

The event will take place online using Zoom. The Zoom link for this online event will be sent to you in a reminder email, 24 hours prior to the event.

Culture Connects is a year-round programme that invites people in Dublin to try out new things. We offer ways for people to make and create together, to share ideas and connect through culture and conversation.

Our try it workshops cover a wide range of cultural activities from home growing to history, painting to poetry, dancing to drawing and so much more. We design sessions so that you can join one workshop or come for several, depending on your preference. Please keep an eye on our website or sign up to our newsletter for regular updates.
