Native Edibles for Companion Planting
Date(s) - November 7, 2019
Time - 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This is a third-party event not organised by Permablitz. We've added it because we reckon it looks pretty good!
Location - Bulleen Art & Garden
Non-indigenous Australians are waking up to the amazing edible plants around us and wondering why we didn’t use them before! Knowing what will grow and also produce a harvest, as well as how to use it, is difficult as most of us aren’t yet familiar with Apple Berries or Native Mint. In this class you’ll learn how to incorporate some easily grown edible native plants into your garden so that they work in harmony with your existing plants, as well as a variety of ways to use these plants in your kitchen.
