Keyhole Gardening for Beginners

Keyhole gardens are small, sustainable units used mainly for growing vegetables, designed to retain moisture and nutrients, and originally developed in sub-Saharan Africa.  Popularised by aid workers in Africa, Keyhole Gardens are now being used all over the world.

This course will begin in our classroom, learning the key principles of this low-cost system and how community-led projects are changing lives in Cameroon.

Attendees will then be given the opportunity to get their hands dirty and learn how to select the most appropriate site and construction materials, before gaining an insight into the construction process.

Find out more on of the course tutors, Natalie Danford’s, experience of introducing keyhole gardens in Cameroon in this blog post written by her.
