Permablitz #205 – Farnham Street Neighbourhood Learning Centre – Booked Out!
Date(s) - May 27, 2018
Time - 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
This event is totally booked out - but keep an eye out for more blitzes being announced soon!
Location - Flemington Community Garden
Please join us for the next stage in the Farnham Street Community Garden’s evolution. Volunteers have been cultivating this vibrant and welcoming edible garden for several decades, and now the garden needs to be upgraded to become more drought resilient and appealing to the next generation of community gardeners.
The design is a collaboration between The Desert Echo and the FSNLC with the aim to make the garden more inclusive to locals, low maintenance and beautiful. Mod boxes have been chosen as a quick and easy method of wicking bed construction.
So… what are we going to do?
North West boundary corner:
- Level surface
- Construct bed
- Layer with scoria
- Line with geofabric
- Fill with soil
- Construct 4 L shaped wicking beds
- Removal of Kikuyu grass
- Prepare site for garden bed construction
Workshops will include:
- Modbox construction technique
- Creating wicking beds
Things to bring along:
- Wheelbarrow if you have one
- Water bottle
This is a child-friendly blitz, but normal parental rules apply – keep your kids engaged and safe.
If you’re up for a day of blitzing and meeting new friends, then make sure you book in!
Well, that was a bit crazy… This one booked out in just a matter of hours!
