Event description
Are you keen to get started with some edible gardening, but aren't ready to immerse into a ten week course? Start here.

About this Event

Here's a five day intensive, aimed at the home gardener looking to get started with some basic skills. I'll be taking sub-units from the comprehensive 10 week course call 'Foundations of Edible Gardening' to give you some essentials to get you started at this time of year.

Friday: DIY seed raising mix. Planting seeds.

Saturday: Container gardening, DIY Potting Mix, Transplanting seedlings, tools for growing from seed at a home scale.

Sunday: Composting on a home scale: tips to optimise use more of the soil you make.

Monday: Worm farming, in-ground worm farming.

Tuesday: Choosing what to grow for your garden in August, September, October.

[If you can't make it to all the zoom sessions, there will be a link to watch it afterwards]

We'll also use a private Facebook group for Q&A.

The great thing about a private Facebook group is that you can post videos and photos of your own garden, and get to know other people in the class. I see Facebook gardening related groups with thousands and thousands of people, and worry that when a group gets too big, the sense of community is compromised.

If small enough, this group could live on as a gardening mastermind group - each person supporting everyone else, sharing their successes, and even doing some seed swapping by post.
