Organic Growing Workshop
November 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This workshop is suitable for those just starting out with food growing as well as experts keen to increase their knowledge of organic systems. The focus will be on fruit and vegetable growing, including: seed raising; how to start a garden from scratch; soil regeneration and compost making. Aspects of permaculture design and food forest creation will also be touched on. There will be a practical component to this workshop so come prepared to get your hands dirty if you are keen to join in on this. The afternoon will be hosted by a family taking their first steps down the path to food security and self sufficiency. There will be an opportunity to hear about their journey so far and their plans for the future, including starting a community of local growers. Following the workshop we will be welcoming in summer with a shared meal and fun activities for the kids! Plus: Community Gardening Opportunity. We will have a representative from South Kaipara Good Food (skgf.org.nz) tell us about their community gardens project and how you might be able to get involved.
What to bring:
- a cash koha ($10 suggested). Kids are welcome for free.
- a salad or something for the table, and/or something for the BBQ. BYO
