🥦 Grow Tropical Vegetables in a Food Forest Garden
Tropical vegetables are ideal in your hot dry/wet climate. You can grow many of your favourite vegetables through most of the year but when the summer heat strikes, most of our plants just seem to wilt away. But this is when we can have abundant yields from sweet potatoes, Cassava, Taro, Cocoyams and so many more!

🥦 Seed Saving course - 2hours
Learn about correct seed saving practices from your garden. Seed saving networks will be discussed and hopefully established, and also reasons why we need to learn to save our own seeds. Some seeds brought from Australia will be distributed to the hosts to grow on and pass seeds onto others.

Learn to understand your garden soil type with this in depth analyses of the compostion and life in the soil. Bring some soil samples along to test in class.
