No-Dig Garden Beds Workshop – JUNE 10 (CHANGED DATE)

no-dig flyer

No-Dig gardening was first introduced by Sydney gardener Esther Deans in the 1970s. It involves building up layers of organic materials above the ground which gradually decompose to form rich garden soil. No-dig gardens can be built on existing soil, rock, lawn, or even concrete. No-dig gardens can be used for:

  • creating growing space over hard surfaces
  • improving and/or just building over the top of poor soil
  • smothering unwanted lawn
  • temporary gardens (e.g. in rental properties)
  • gardens where soil weight is an issue (e.g. some balconies & rooftops)

In this two-hour workshop, just five minutes out of Blackwood, we’ll create and plant out a no-dig bed so you can compare no-dig with other types of garden beds and find out just how easy it is. Notes are included. Bookings are now open: nadjasgarden@gmail.com or ph 0410 636 857. (PLEASE NOTE DATE HAS CHANGED TO 10TH JUNE)
