Spring Seasonal Planting Workshop
Join ABC radio’s horticulturalist Meredith Kirton as she takes you
through the easy, practical steps to get your garden ready for growing
your favourite spring and summer menu items.
This workshop will show you a nature-based approach towards growing delicious, organic foods and creating a nutrient-rich potting mix.
Not only will you learn how and what to grow this spring, you will get
to taste some of the plants growing in the FoodFaith garden and take
home some seasonal seedlings to get you growing!
This event is being run in conjunction with FoodFaith's 'Rock On Spring' event, so attendees will be invited to participate in the making of a rock labyrinth and learn about rock gardens.
