Is anyone interested in how to design small garden spaces?

I am thrilled to be joining the MGS team of tutors and thinking about a course on how to deal with particularly small spaces, gardens, yards, balcony etc.  Who thinks that this is a good idea and are you struggling with a tiny garden?  How tiny is tiny? So much to ask....

Hi Annie. This course sounds like a fantastic idea. I think the emphasis needs to be on self sufficient food production in a tiny space at this current time. Certainly addressing issues such as balcony weights and ways around this, insufficient light in yards etc. I look forward to your course.

Also I think there is a great need for a completely organic course. Simple questions I have been unable to answer over the years such as finding organic lawn sand, an organic lawn fertiliser that is suitable for autumn use etc. There is no information out there. Organic weedkiller - some councils are using vinegar now instead of glyphosate. What is the downside of using vinegar on environment? Completely ethical garden practice while producing a garden to be the envy of everyone...!! So many courses are needed on here.

HI Gayle, so pleased that you think this is a good idea for a course. Self sufficiency is a very interesting topic, but not an easy thing to achieve even in a large garden let alone a small space. But I take on board your request and that growing food, no matter how small a space you have is important. It is fun for children to get involved with too and so important in their education. The organic subject is not so hard to answer, as many people are gardening organically. Being organic is a way of life really irrespective of the size of your garden. This is all really useful information for us, thanks again for responding.

Annie - really great to have you on board. Welcome to the team! My view is that there is quite a lot of demand for city/urban gardens (London/New York/San Fran) - apartments, roof terraces and balconies. Would be good to explore this further though and hear from some of our community members

Thanks Elspeth, I completely agree with you. Gardens play such an important role in our lives and those in the urban setting are possibly the most important of all. Looking forward to being a part the MGS team and I am very honored to be joining the highly esteemed group of tutors.
