Weekend Course Introduction – Skattungbyn

SO THIS WEEKEND I TRAVELLED FROM STOCKHOLM UP TO SKATTUNBYN A LITTLE VILLAGE OUTSIDE MORA.

I APPLIED LAST YEAR FOR A DISTANCE GARDENING COURSE THAT FOCUSSES ON GARDENING IN THE NORTH.

ON MONDAY I GOT AN ACCEPTANCE LETTER BUT THE ONLY THING WAS THAT THE COURSE STARTS ON SUNDAY!

I DON’T DRIVE/ HAVE A LICENSE SO I TRAVELLED NORTH FOR CLOSE TO 5 HOURS VIA TRAIN-TRAIN-BUS.

I STAYED AT A HOSTEL ON SATURDAY NIGHT AND THEN TRAVELLED TO THE VILLAGE ON SUNDAY MORNING.

THE COURSE INTRODUCTION WAS MOSTLY SPENT DISCUSSING OUR INTERESTS IN GARDENING AND WHAT

WE WANT TO GAIN FROM THE COURSE, LOGISTICS SUCH AS HOW TO USE THE SCHOOL PROGRAMS

AS WELL AS A FANTASTIC LUNCH FOLLOWED BY A WORKSHOP. IT IS VERY INTERESTING BECAUSE WE ALL

COME FROM DIFFERENT GROWING ZONES, TYPES OF GARDEN AREAS, SOIL TYPES AMONGST OTHER THINGS.

WE MADE A BASIC PLANTING SOIL AND SPOKE BRIEFLY ABOUT DIFFERENT TYPES OF GROWING POTS

AND PLANTING SEEDS. IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE DESPITE BEING QUITE UNWELL.

JAG ÅKTE TILL SKATTUNGBYN UTANFÖR MORA, DALARNA. JAG BLEV ANMÄLD TILL EN KURS HOS

MORA FOLKHÖGSKOLA ‘TRÄDGÅRD I NORR’ OCH SPENDERAT SÖNDAG MED DE ANDRA DELTAGARNA.

KURSEN ÄR DISTANS MEN VI HADE EN NÄRTRÄFF FÖR ATT MÖTA VARANDRA OCH FÖR ATT FÅ VETA

MER OM KURSEN. DET VAR SUPER KUL ATT MÖTA ANDRA SOM HAR EN LIKADANA INTRESSE

I EKOLOGISK ODLING. DET LÅTER JÄTTE BRA OCH JAG HOPPAS LÄRA MYCKET I KURSEN.
