Course summary

Self Paced 20-hour course to help you understand more about farming and gardening vertically. Explore ways of growing plants in small spaces for amenity or as a crop. Vertical farming is a logical and effective way of growing vegetables, fruits and herbs in urban areas not only for personal needs, but also as a small commercial farm. This course has been developed as a starting point for: • Home Gardeners seeking to grow their own food • Urban Farming start ups seeking to optimise the production from limited space • Interior and exterior landscapers, seeking to create greener, healthier spaces in residential, commercial and public places. It is possible with a little know how and planning, to create a profitable urban farm. Walls of plants can be used to transform courtyards, building interiors and stark urban landscapes; improving air quality, reducing temperature extremes and enhancing human wellbeing in many other ways. Our 20 hour courses are self paced and will help you understand a topic in a short amount of time. You can work through the course when you like- test yourself with mini-tests along the way. There are extra case studies or research you can undertake if you would really like to get into the topic. Once you have completed the lessons and self assessment tasks, there is a final exam undertaken online- you can then download your personalised certificate.
