SOLD OUT! The Abundant Vegie Patch Tauranga

January 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm


My favourite workshop – the workshop that really gets your food gardening humming, that changes your food gardening life! – is coming to Tauranga in January. I’m very excited to be teaching from the Crafty Gatherer homestead (home of the broadfork).

“This workshop is the best money I’ve spent on my garden”

“What an eye opener – my soil! I’ve just been opening bags and tossing them on … fingers crossed they work. No more random fertilising for me. I can’t wait to get my broadfork and begin growing my soil. Thanks so much Kath!”

“So much to learn from Kath! We’ve been gardening for years, but have learned a whole new view on growing food. And it starts in the world beneath our feet. On the drive home we were buzzing!, planning all the changes we were going to make. Starting with the layout, which we see now is very high maintenance. We’re taking up Kath’s advice to grow in containers and go temporary while we get to know our land and get clear on what we want. Then we’ll be re organising our food garden – Kath style. I highly recommend this workshop.”

Here’s the workshop lowdown

Everything you need to grow an abundant vegie patch!

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.

We’ll fill your tummys with lots of yummy goodness – morning tea and lunch provided.

“Kath is the real deal when it comes to setting up and running a home food garden. I went to this workshop to get help designing my vegie patch, but got so much more than that. I cant wait to put it all into action! We were throwing one question after another at Kath, and she answered them all. I had such an inspiring day. Even though it was pretty intense, we had plenty of laughs – Kath makes it fun. I highly recommend the Abundant Vegie Patch workshop to anyone who wants to grow their own food.”
