Two days of hands-on learning, equipping you with the skills to grow food in your own home.
Exciting time Folks! We’re partnering with Fat Pig Farm to bring you two days of hands-on Real Skills for Growing Food. Join Hannah Moloney, Anton Vikstrom and Fat Pig Farm market gardener, Jonathon Cooper to learn the basics in growing your own food in urban and small spaces.
You’ll get to learn all about…
Soil. If you want to grow good food, you’re going to need to know about soil – this is the key to awesome food production. We’ll introduce you to the soil food web and explore a range of soil preparation methods for different contexts.
Propagation. Empower yourself to grow food from scratch – we’ll look at everything from making your own seed raising mix, planting seeds, and growing from cuttings.
Vegetable growing. We’ll introduce you to growing both annual and perennial vegetables so you can create diverse, edible garden-scapes.
Fruit trees. You’ll learn all about planting and pruning fruit trees, plus we’ll introduce you to a wonderful concept called ‘food forests’.
Who should come to this workshop?
We’ve designed this workshop as an introduction for folks wanting to get started in growing their own food and for people looking for some extra guidance in refining their growing skills. If you’re looking for an advanced food growing workshop, this one isn’t for you – but stay tuned as we have big plans for a rather fantastic workshop on this.
