The Abundant Vegie Patch, Helensville

October 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Feb Tomatoes

This workshop is jam packed! Everything you need to grow an abundant vegie 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 greencrops; 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 vegie patch; cunning ways to manage weeds; integrated pest management (natures way); shelter and the best beginning for your vegie beds
