Bookings are Essential
To ensure COVID-safe physical distancing can be maintained, there will be a maximum of 10 people able to attend each group (we’ll have two separate groups attending during the afternoon). Group 1 will be from 2.00pm to 3.00pm and Group 2 will be from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
We will offer a wait list, so if you book and are then unable to attend, please let us know immediately so we can offer your place to someone else.
What We’ll Do
We’ll start at 2.00pm (or 3.30pm for group 2) with a welcome and introductions.
Then we’ll have an opportunity to explore the garden with Kushla.
We’ll be welcomed into this productive, low maintenance, new suburban, edible garden. This is a great opportunity to see what can be achieved in a small backyard. Kushla’s garden is less than 2 years old and all edible. She has wicking beds, compost, and many less common food plants, plus permanent perennial layers similar to a food forest in no dig garden beds.
Everyone is welcome but bookings are essential to ensure we don’t exceed 10 people attending at each time.
Do you have surplus? We’ll set up a share table on the verandah.
We encourage you to bring your surplus produce, plants, seeds, books, craft supplies and resources to share with others.
Some ideas of what you could bring include – fruit, vegetables, herbs, eggs, honey, milk, jams, pickles, preserves, jars, ferments, starters, scobies, seeds, plants, seedlings, cuttings, tubers, pots, tools, gardening magazines, permaculture books, recipes, patterns, manure, coffee grounds, compost additives, worms, meal worms, wool, fabric, craft supplies, soap, natural cleaning products, plastic alternatives, produce bags – the list is extensive.
Please bring whatever you can and then take home whatever you need within our culture of generosity and free sharing.
Light Afternoon Tea
A light afternoon tea will be served on the verandah (with Gluten Free and Vegan options).
