Carlingford backyard transformation - PSN Garden Team
In October the Garden Team will be helping Cecilia put in place the earthworks for her to plant out a fruitful food forest in the backyard of her property at Carlingford. Cecilia's backyard is on a slight downward slope and we will be constructing 4 swales to slow water down as it moves through the property and store it in the underlying soil to provide a good supply of water for the new plants to establish. We will also focus on building soil using a technique of layering - applying lucerne, manures, trace elements and green manure crops to transform compact clay dug out from the swales into healthy soil and planting a banana circle.
This permabee will be a great hands on event to learn about earthworks, water management and soil improvement. It will also be a great way to connect with active permies and get to know your community.
WHAT TO BRING...
Please bring personal protection gear such as a hat, sunscreen, gloves, boots and a water bottle. If you can, please bring along a mattock, spade or shovel. Please clearly put your name on all your tools.
