Spend a Sunday afternoon with me in my garden as we delve into gardening for the kitchen. This is an active workshop where we do real things. My garden is such that it is not suitable for wheelchairs.
Whether you have a food garden now or are just setting up, let me give you some tips to make your garden beautiful, your life less stressful, your food production suit your budget and household, as well as help you use what you grow, all year round.
Second Sunday of the month...
December 13th, 3pm - 5pm
I would like to run monthly kitchen garden workshops throughout the year so you can follow the seasons with me and become comfortable with sowing seeds, raising seedlings, looking after the soil, incorporating nature and native plants, permaculture, mulching, irrigation, managing insects and disease and much more.
I have lived in Tasmania now for 5 years and spent a lifetime before that growing food for my family in Adelaide. I started my first vegetable garden when I was 17 and my mother loved using it everyday. My father was a nurseryman and I grew up surrounded by 7 acres of nursery around our house. My mother says I have sap in my veins but I know nothing compared to my father, whose father before him started the nursery. I write the Kitchen Garden Guide for The Cygnet Classifieds where I can indulge my love of writing, combined with my love of gardening.
Growing food and sharing it, cooking it and talking about it are really the essence of who I am. I like to look at the whole picture of world food for humans and spend many happy hours immersed in books to do with the history, geography and anthropology of vegetables. These are wonderful topics for rainy Sunday afternoon workshops!
$30 / person, couples for $50,
children (accompanied by an adult) $15
