Laughing DUCK GARDENS & Cookery

Gardening & Cookery Workshops

Practical advice and hands-on techniques: We are offering practical workshops based on over two decades of experience (for gardening; three for cooking) to help you become a better food gardener and a better cook. The 2010 schedule is posted here.


To register or for more information, please contact us. If you are interested in one of our workshops but can’t make it, contact us, anyway. If we have enough interest, we’ll offer the workshop on an other day too! We can also arrange for private lesson or a consulting session.

Private lessons (one on one or for a group) are also available, as well as gift certificates.
