Garden Bed Construction Workshop/ Autumn Working Bee
Garden Bed Workshop/ Working Bee - Saturday 13 May, 9am - 1pm at KEG - Learn about Hugelkultur, Wicking and Esther Dean Style No-dig garden beds. $5 donation.
One of our lovely volunteers Vivian has offered to demonstrate Quick Pickling as part of our working bee / workshop next Saturday 13/5/23. Register to join us here and bring a jar and some spare veges to pickle eg carrot, cucumber, radishes … It's easy and fun! Now back to the garden bed information:
Hugelkultur Garden bed benefits include: no/low cost, all-natural materials, carbon storing good water retention. John R (Woy Woy Community Garden volunteer) will teach us how these gardens work and we will set up the first of four in our garden.
Wicking beds have an inbuilt reservoir of water which waters veggies from the bottom up - the way they like it!! They are an easy working height using a lot less water and minimal work to maintain once set up.
Rosie (Founder of Laguna Earth House) will be our teacher on the day and has been growing food organically for 50 years. She now has a local productive veggie garden with raised and wicking beds (pictured at top of event page).
She will demonstrate the simplicity of set up in this hands-on workshop.
