Grow Your Own Evening Classes in Lymm

This course is aimed at parents in the Lymm community who have either been encouraged by their children or want to grow healthy food for all the family. The course will be run by Jan Daniel who began her working life as a Secondary Science (Biology) teacher although has spent most of her working life delivering and managing training within the manufacturing and construction industries.  In 2009, she began work in a voluntary capacity on a school gardening project before starting work as the Allotment Project Coordinator for Lymm schools in 2010.

Jan has been passionate about gardening for over 15 years and growing vegetables in particular for the last seven years when she and partner, Mike began cultivating allotments; one from scratch and resurrecting the second from beneath a forest of weeds. On both allotments, Jan and Mike have grown their vegetables organically and tried wherever possible to use recycled materials to create vegetable bed edges, pathways and compost bays; the sheds have been recycled from other gardens and Jan finds it very hard not to walk past a skip without having a peek to see if there is anything to be used on their plot!

Please also see attached photos of the work that they have done at their own allotment and it’s easy to see how passionate they are about this.

If you want anymore information about the course please send an email to Jan at and she will let you know how you can get involved.
