Self-Watering Gardens


Saturday - 04.03.2023

10 am to 4 pm

Laudato Si Centre, Worsley, M28 2ND


In our temperate climate, we are blessed with an abundance of rain. However, we often get too much at times, and occasionally, when most needed, none at all.

Learn the theory and practice of efficient self-watering systems for any size garden. Drought proof your garden and go on holidays knowing your plants shall be well watered. Conversely, learn how these same methods can prevent soil erosion and flooding during rainy seasons.

Hands-on activities:

  • identify the watering needs of different growing areas to find out where to place open and closed self watering systems on site according to the water needs of different garden zones
  • working in groups to design a self-watering systems concept proposal that fits the present and future needs of the eco-garden.

The day course fee is £60. Book your place. Registrations closed.

If you need an alternative payment method, an invoice, or further info please email Teresa, or text your name and query to 07790 386 869.

The Self-Watering Gardens day course is a module on the Eco-Gardening Essential Training Course - EGET - a modular programme designed to bridge the knowledge gap between conventional landscaping, gardening and horticulture, and designing resilient eco-gardens and re-wilding projects. Learn more about the full EGET programme at Laudato Si Centre.
