Permablitz #207 – Farnham Street Neighbourhood Learning Centre – Booked Out!
Date(s) - June 16, 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 final stage in the Farnham Street Community Garden’s evolution. Following a fantastic blitz on 27 May we’d love to complete the construction of the new garden beds on Saturday 16th June.
Volunteers have been cultivating this vibrant and welcoming edible garden for several decades, and now the garden is being 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?
- Construct 2 L shaped wicking beds
- Prepare site for garden bed construction
- Construct 4 L shaped wicking beds
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!
Wow, that was fast! This follow-up blitz has booked out in a matter of hours – stay tuned for announcements for the next one!
