$100.00
peppers

Learn how to get your food garden humming and the crops pouring in! (And there’s nothing arduous or complicated about it.) Everything you need to grow an abundant veggie patch.

Morning tea and lunch provided.

You’ll learn:

Soil Health: What good soil looks like, my easy peasy compost recipe, making and using liquid feed; how to grow and use green crops; simple ways to recycle food scraps; aerating your soils (and why it is so important); how to turn over and prepare garden beds

Crop Rotation: Rotating your crops prevents pest and disease and keeps your soils balanced. It’s important no matter how small your plot is, and is not as hard as you think.

Design: Good harvests begin with good design. Choose the best site for your veggie patch; cunning ways to manage weeds; integrated pest management (natures way); shelter and the best beginning for your veggie beds

This workshop is a mix of hands on and theory, so wear your gardening gear and bring your gloves.

Directions are

From Stillwater, turn east onto Arnold Valley Rd (travelling towards Moana) and go 16km’s, turn right onto Aratika Drive (signposted). There are 8 or so letterboxes at the junction. Jo’s house is 300m up Aratika Dr on the right, halfway up a small hill. We will put out a balloon for you!
