I’ll be running some gardening workshops at Bulleen Art & Garden in the next few months – see the whole range of classes available and book online here – http://baag.cart.net.au/store/Classes/
Here are the three workshops I’ll be running:
No-Dig Gardening Workshop
Price: AUD $30.00
A no-dig garden can practically be built anywhere that has some sunshine and it really doesn’t involve any digging! This hands-on workshop will demonstrate the steps involved, the materials used and then how to actually plant into it. You CAN have a vegie patch without breaking your back!
Suitable for all wishing to start up a new vegie bed.
SATURDAY 18th AUGUST, 10.00am – 12noon
Edible Forest Gardening
Price: AUD $30.00
Ever wondered how forests grow by themselves without any mowing, spraying, digging or weeding, while your vegie patch takes so much work? Imagine if you could build a forest with just edible plants and trees? Well, you can. Learn how to construct one of the most productive edible garden system that takes the least work to maintain, is naturally pest and disease resistant, and can be built in backyards of any size. Angelo of Deep Green Permaculture runs Melbourne’s first demonstration edible forest garden, and can show you how to maximise the productivity of your backyard through forest gardening by turning your garden into a thriving, productive, living ecosystem brimming with produce.
Suitable for gardeners with some basic experience
