A new program in the UK is matching up novice gardeners with experienced horticulture tutors. Over 32,000 people have signed up for the program, that promises to help them with everything from finding a suitable plot of land to deciding what’s realistic to grow. Tutors are also on call in the following months via phone or email to answer any questions. This “veg doctor” program is sponsored by organizations like the National Trust, Royal Horticultural Society and Garden Organic. A top priority of the scheme is to re-skill the general public in the largely forgotten art of growing vegetables.
