Windowsill gardening. Runner beans, lettuce and herbs are all plants you can grow on your windowsill - some plants to start growing early and some to grow all the way.  Join our friends from Hulme Community Garden Centre in this practical workshop to find out how to use the light through your window.

Urban Naturalist is a programme of friendly, practical workshops for adults run by leading naturalists. From wild food-foraging and composting to bird song and insect identification, explore biodiversity on our doorstep.
