Learn to build IBC wicking beds and set up a fruit tree espalier

We are heading to new member Vanessa's garden in Normanhurst to help her set up IBC wicking beds and espalier fruit trees.

IBCs are industrial-grade containers used for transporting various materials. With a bit of know-how, they can be recycled into self-watering garden beds.

We'll also be learning about the ancient technique of espalier which enables you to grow fruit using minimal space.

During the day we will: 

  • Turn Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) into wicking beds
  • Set up a frame to espalier fruit trees
  • Transplant Vanessa's existing fruit trees into their new position
  • Talk about methods and techniques to espalier fruit trees
  • Share ideas, ask and answer questions and generally have a good time!

This is a great opportunity to ask questions and get hands-on experience in building these types of garden structures.

What to bring: Gloves, water, something to share for morning tea.

What to wear: Sturdy closed-in shoes, a hat.

Lunch will be provided.

As spaces are limited, please let us know if you change your mind and cannot attend so someone else can take your place.
