This introductory level workshop, held across two sessions is aimed at people who want to grow their own food at home but don't know how or where to start. Our experienced tutor is a passionate gardener and educator with a penchant for good, healthy, homegrown food.
Places are strictly limited due to venue space constraints so please register early to reserve your space.
In part 2, we'll cover: - Planning your garden and choosing what to grow - Sourcing plants (seedlings versus seed raised at home, cuttings etc for woody herbs) - Seed propagation and saving - Home food production as a closed loop system - returning nutrients to the soil by composting/worm farming - Sharing and swapping food with the community.
We highly recommend beginner or intermediate gardeners interested in growing your own healthy, delicious, nutritious food make time to come to both sessions as you'll learn a lot of important stuff at both.
For more information, please call the Environment Centre from Wednesday to Friday during the day or Saturday mornings.
