Plant, Grow, Eat, Connect - Garden Design Workshop
Join us for this garden planning workshop with Karen Sutherland and learn how to create a productive edible garden! As part of the session we'lll take a walk through the community garden and explore opportunities to make the garden more productive and deliver a year round harvest.
If you're interested in gardening and keen on getting involved in the community, we’re looking for members of the community who want to learn the skills needed to grow and maintain a sustainable edible garden. Help us by putting those skill into practice in our community garden while enjoying regular catch ups with like-minded people.
