Spring Workshop Round Up
In the wonderful September sunshine gardeners and visitors were treated to two fabulous workshops from our garden friends and advisers, Selia Hierk and Angelo Eliades.
Seila shared his permaculture expertise with the group and helped us to plan and plant out our garden beds for Spring and Summer. As always, his advice regarding soil preparation, maximising growing space, planting seeds and seedlings and plant selection was invaluable to the community garden and perfect for applying in our own growing spaces, however small or large.
Angelo helped us to extend our knowledge about the varieties of berries and vines in the community garden and particularly how they work within the food forest ecosystem. Under his guidance the group was able to undertake some much needed maintenance of the plants and plan for future growth and fruiting.
