The workshops will run throughout January until the end of March, focusing on topics such as machinery for intensive horticulture, plant propagation for intensive vegetable production, pruning of top fruit orchards for effective pest and disease management, novel vegetable crops and non-chemical weed management for vegetable production.
Phil Sumption of Garden Organic said: "This training aims to equip growers with skills to face the challenges facing producers today."
He continued: "Technical skills on how to produce crops sustainably without chemicals will enable growers to produce quality crops while reducing their carbon footprint and, above all, increasing their profitability."
Each training course costs £24 + VAT for growers in the region and £40 + VAT for those outside.
