Time - All Day
Location - Poowong
Poowong’s first Permablitz!
Our straw bale house is almost finished. Now it’s time for our sustainable garden. It’s a blank canvas with 2 acres of pasture to turn into productive garden.
We’ll be starting with trees – Hazelnuts, carob, olives, chestnuts, citrus. Come for the Hazelnut grove workshop held by Karen Sutherland of Edible Eden.
Then native creek bed planting – carex, tea tree, lomandra and other water plants to encourage insects and birds as well as help our giant earthworm colonies. Karen will also do a water plants workshop here too.
If we get time we’ll add to the start of our fruit den with some apple trees and under story berry boxes.
Future projects include a hen haven and a vegie stair case.
Can’t wait to share this learning experience with you. Tours of our straw bale pole house available too.
