Permablitz #210 – Edithvale – Pt 2
Date(s) - August 5, 2018
Time - 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
This event is totally booked out - but keep an eye out for more blitzes being announced soon!
Tina discovered permaculture a few years ago and has since started volunteering at the Downs Estate in Seaford, joined her local community garden and even teamed up with her local permaculture group! After being inspired by a permaculture design at a Very Edible Gardens workshop, she’s decided to take the plunge and apply the principles to her own garden – and superstar Guild Designer Terry has helped make her dreams into a reality!
Tina and Terry have realised there’s a bit too much planned to complete in a single day, so we’re going to split this one out into two – as such, there’s a second chance to join us and get your hands dirty while transforming this garden space!
On the day, we’re going to be:
- Creating a lasagna garden to sit and biologically “stew” until spring fruit tree planting
- Moving manure, topsoil and mulch from driveway into garden beds Planting of beds with perennials and herbs
- Planting bare rooted fruit trees and pruning for best growing results
There will be some great workshops, including
- learning about designing for albedo and heat
- designing a tropical food forest
- building a sponge bed based on Colin Austin’s systems
This is a super kid friendly* blitz! Kids activities include:
- Painting pots
- Helping with planting
*Ideally kids should wear gloves and face masks because of manure and mulch fumes
Things to bring:
Gum boots and thick socks for the first part – moving compost and manure!
Please bring hats, coats and gardening gloves, also we need 3 or 4 wheelbarrows and lots of shovels and sturdy rakes.
This will be a pretty awesome day –
make sure you get your name down in the form below!
