I used to be so daunted by gardening and by my lack of instinct for it – then learnt that it’s just a lifelong learning process, and now I can’t get enough of it. Here’s a bunch of learning resources for you to enjoy right now in Adelaide!! Get looking and booking.
1. Want to get serious about growing subtropical fruits and citrus? Ready to learn how to graft your own trees? Sally will teach you how, in the delicious spring surrounds of Glenelg North Community Garden, TOMORROW, 17 November at 12.30. TICKETS: $20 – includes a baby white sapote tree to graft and take home!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Ph 0438 512 389.
2. Basics of permaculture and how to get your garden organised to produce more than you imagined you could: “A Taste of Suburban Permaculture” – right here at our home garden in Warradale on Saturday 24 November from 10am. It’s a small group workshop with lots to see, taste, collect and explore. TICKETS: $30 includes home-made morning tea. Seeds also available for sale on the day. (Probably the last weekend workshop I’ll squeeze into this year.)
3. The Very Next Day… Sunday 25th November: Learn how to grow vegetables really, really well at “Growing Great Veggies” with Steven Hoepfner of Wagtail Urban Farm and Nat Wiseman of Village Greens of Willunga Creek. These guys combine deep organic market gardening knowledge and experience with great teaching skills, practical tips, live demonstration, soil science and fun. Hosted at the amazing Joe’s Connected Garden. TICKETS: $65 / $20 concession
4. Finally, filmed at Wagtail Urban Farm, here’s Steven’s tips on prepping veg beds with complete organic fertiliser and compost.
This is how he grows the best veg in town. Enjoy!
