About the event

Learn how to grow a range of tasty berries and vines in the garden and in pots, including strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and their hybrids, grapes, passionfruit, kiwifruit, goji berries, as well as some native bush foods! 

This training session will cover:

  • their growing and feeding requirements, 
  • harvesting, pruning/maintenance, 
  • and protection from pests. 

It will also include instruction on propagation – how to make more plants from existing ones for free! This is a 2-hour workshop which includes a 15-minute questions and answers session at the end.

Angelo Eliades is a presenter, trainer and writer in the areas of sustainable gardening and permaculture. He has worked as a horticulturist in the garden nursery industry over the last ten years, writes for a major Australian gardening magazine, has a demonstration food forest garden in Melbourne’s inner suburbs, and runs the educational website Deep Green Permaculture.

Waring (wombat) is the coldest, wettest Wurundjeri season, spanning from April – July, where mushrooms and moths flourish and wombats roam in the afternoon sun.

    Hi Angelo, I am looking at attending the Workshop-Berries and Vines at Oakhill but I’m confused about the ticket selection. What is the difference between the ‘Waged’ $50 and ‘Unwaged’ $25 tickets?
    Thanks
    Louise

      Hi Louise, thanks for your question, and hoping you can join us for the workshop! 🙂
      I’m the presenter, not the organiser of the workshop, but hopefully I can be of help here.
      I believe the difference is that ‘waged’ price is for people who work/have jobs, and ‘unwaged’ is for people who aren’t working/don’t have an income.
