    Event description

    A wonderful chance to be immersed in a fully functioning (and beautiful) Syntropic garden system.

    We'll learn the importance of diversity andΒ nutrient cycling by exploring and interacting.

    There'll be composting worms, seeds to plant and save in clay balls,Β food to harvest and fun to be had.Β 

    The day begins with creating our own Garden Diaries so that we can record our favourite and special parts from the day.Β 

    We'll go from observing seeds forming on a plant to capturing seeds, planting them, seeing some "prepared earlier" seedlings and then planting these seedlings,Β to really grasp the full cycle of nature. We'll also explore through compost how the waste of one thing becomes the life source of another! And of course we'll adventure the gardenΒ to enlighten our senses, spotting bugs, picking and tastingΒ food fresh from the plant, smelling aromas,Β identifying species and having a dig in the soil to see what healthy, rich soil looks, smells and feels like.Β 

    You'll get to take home your seed traysΒ and watch them grow andΒ evolve at home. As well as take home seed clay balls so that you can hold onto your seeds until a time that feels right and toss them into the ether, knowing that they will have made one little patch of ground a better place.Β 

    We suggest ages 7 - 12, but if you think your kid will love the day then please bring them along. Parents are welcome.

    The workshop will be coordinated by Alice and Dan from Green For You. Green For YouΒ offers food waste solutions for local businesses by implementing circular economy principles. Green For You aims to make a long lasting impact on the current and future generations of our local communities. Β 

    Green For You exists to give purpose to individuals. Purpose, no matter how big or small, gives us something to live for. We believe that cultivating and regenerating soil to grow real foodΒ and wonderfulΒ flowers or foliage gives us an individual purpose. When we come together to learn and share knowledge, we can feel supported, valued and seen.

    Meet Dan:Β A passionate horticulturalist and landscape designer, Dan's life revolves around plants and the natural world. Raised in Tasmania, Dan was exposed to the raw beauty of nature from a young ageΒ and this created a deep seated desire to help protect this special place we call earth. Dan founded Green For You as a means to give purpose to his life and others. By offering workshops to our local communities, Dan hopes to influence positive change in the younger generations. β€œBy empowering young people with the knowledge and skills to make more sustainable choices, we can create a generation of informed and responsible consumers who are committed to reducing food waste and building a more sustainable future".Β 

    Meet Alice:Β A qualifiedΒ Permaculturalist with a deep love and passion for soil and compost, Alice has made it her mission to share the importance of rehabilitating our soil and growing nutrient dense food.Β β€œThere is such beauty and gravity in nutrient cycling, a system so simple yet efficient, and one which will tremendously help to rebuild the health of our soils and thus, the health of humans. Instilling these practices early is what will shift mindsets and create a lasting future.” Alice is currently working alongside Dan at Green For You, where their passion to make change in the community is coming to life.Β She is driven to grow the skills and knowledge around soil, composting and food waste within the ones who can help change our world.Β
