Berm Gardening Beginners Workshop

Facilitated by Beth Lew of ‘Growing Gardens and Communities - Manawatū’ & Suzanne Chelius from RECAP/PNCC Sustainable Living Programme. This is one for those just starting out, with some info on best practice on berm gardening (now allowed without permission from the PNCC). This will be a hands-on workshop where you will help create raised beds, with some easy growing seeds and seedlings to take home to start your own māra kai (food garden). If you’ve wanted to grow your own but don’t know how to get started, this one’s for you! We’ll be covering: general site analysis and the importance of tracking sun/wind/water, using your berm to garden, the benefits of a no-dig garden bed/raised bed, soil health/building soil, seasonal planting/companion planting and more.

When: Saturday October 23rd, 10am-1pm

Where: 69 North street, Ashhurst

Free, but koha appreciated.
