With this blog, I try to chronicle what I’m gardening and how I’m gardening in real time so that anyone can learn from my experience and feel like they can have a go. If you would like to grow your own food or have a small space you’d like to fill with flowers but just need help getting started then do get in touch if you can’t find what you need on the blog and I will try to help.
There are also local initiatives around the city that you may want to check out: see the Get Involved page.
Perhaps you’ve already got stuck into gardening or are running a community growing project? Then I’d love to hear what your experience here has been like.
Would you like to set up growing projects with children at your school/kindergarten/after-school club but don’t know where to begin? Gardening can build and nurture a child’s connection with the world. School gardens can be fun and creative, and are a great way of bringing the whole school community together: parents, teachers and staff and children. I can offer some ideas of small practical activities right through to helping you to plan your garden space. From growing sprouts in a jar, flowers on a window sill or vegetables in the playground, remember, no space is too small!
Check back on this site periodically as I will try to highlight gardening/growing activities and events I come across taking place in and around Oslo. I’m always keen to find out about new projects. So if you know of any local projects not mentioned on the blog, or you want to share what’s happening in your garden, or you simply have a question about gardening, then please contact me using the form below:
