With companion planting, by knowing which plants to grow together and which ones not to, you can grow stronger, healthier and more productive plants, improve soil quality, and reduce pests and diseases in your garden. Learn which companion plants to add to your garden to solve many common garden problems naturally, and find out how to construct ‘plant guilds’; groups of plants that grow much better together for more abundant harvests.

I feel I gained so much knowledge from this 3 hour workshop. Angelo is a great presenter who puts the participant at ease immediately and shares his wealth of experience freely, he is passionate about gardening, permaculture and companion planting. Thanks for inspiring me to look at my garden in a whole new light
Thoroughly enjoyed session, very knowledgeable and interesting presenter. I will definitely be looking for his name on future courses .
An informative class, pitched just right for the students who participated. Easy relaxed style, with students welcome to ask pertinent questions as the class proceeded, and a teacher who was skilled at keeping the pace quick and interesting. Lots of information from the teacher's own research, so probably not available easily anywhere else. I thoroughly recommend the teacher and the venue.
