Garden Team Event at Karonga
Keen to learn how to build a keyhole garden? Want to try no-dig gardening or compost tea brewing? Then come along and join us at the first Permabee for 2012!
The PSN Garden Team is running a big event at Karonga School, Epping. We will be dismantling and re-lining the famous keyhole garden outside the school kitchen, and this will be a great event for picking up all the practical skills you need for constructing your own productive garden in a small space. We'll be also be brewing up a huge batch of compost tea, and this is a great opportunity to learn how to use the brewer and see how to build healthy soil using biological methods.
This day will be a big one and there will be something for everyone to do. For the muscly types there will be some shoveling, barrowing of compost and brickwork. For those looking for a gentler day we'll be doing mulching, planting and general garden maintenance.
Garden Team days are great opportunities to learn practical skills on the job, meet passionate and active new people and, above all, having fun. It will also be a great chance to catch up with PSN permaculture experts and garden team regulars after a long Christmas break.
WHAT TO BRING...
A simple dish or other contribution to share for lunch will be greatly appreciated. Tea and coffee will be supplied by the school.
Also, please bring your own hat, gloves, water bottle, block out and garden tools (such as spade, shovel, secateurs etc).
We need all the wheelbarrows we can get, so if you are able to bring yours along please do!
