Monthly Gardening Classes

We deliver a monthly gardening class in Larne (first Monday of the month) and Carrickfergus (first Thursday of the month) from 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm.
Come along to hear the latest gardening advice, watch planting demos and sample our homemade jams, chutneys and cakes on sale.

Community Horticulture Projects

Hands-on practical activities are combined with inspiring advice on how to green up your gardens and local communities. Courses and projects are tailored to suit your needs and artisanal Willow & Greene catering can be provided. All events highlight the health and nurturing benefits of gardening.

Bespoke Cookery Experiences

Book in for a personalised cookery course and develop the confidence to master those cookery skills which will enable you to impress your family and friends and pick up clever time and money-saving tips along the way. Our courses are a unique gift experience for birthdays or other memorable dates.

I am passionate about how we can be nurtured by nature. I want to share my knowledge of horticulture and cookery so we can all become more connected with our green spaces, more aware of how to grow our own food and more confident about cooking for our loved ones.

Together let's...

Willow & Greene provided our community group with a first-rate workshop experience with an informative, interesting and interactive presentation by Kerry.

They supplied all the resources and support material including a very enjoyable buffet afterwards with their delicious home-made produce.  Kerry was extremely helpful, supportive and knowledgeable.

Overall Willow & Greene were extremely professional, incredibly accommodating and very user-friendly.

Willow & Green's work is inspiring and engaging, whether you are interested or not in gardening, or have no outside space or lots of it.
Kerry gives her all; every workshop is packed full of valuable tips, practical know-how and tons of energy.
Beginner or experienced, her workshops and projects are uplifting and encouraging.
