Water For Food & Fun – Workshop, water play, cake
Date(s) - April 28, 2019
Time - 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
This is a third-party event not organised by Permablitz. We've added it because we reckon it looks pretty good!
Growing a humming garden with lots of produce, summer shade and flowers is very satisfying and important for the environment.
Petra will show you how to create or improve a productive garden using minimum water and effort.
Learn how to “drought-proof” your garden as much as possible. You will see what works in our food forest and we will look at little tricks like passive watering (don’t lift a finger once installed!), compost and biochar – natural enhancements, chemical-free.
You will go home with a list of possible actions you can easily do at home – some of them you are already doing. It’s easy to be sustainable, one step at a time.
Petra Kahle convenes the Food Forest Ashburton Group – which looks after the food forest lovingly and thoughtfully. She is the author of the booklet Menu for Good Housekeeping and Planet Care.
For the Kids:
Water games and messy mud play, as well as making and serving lemonade.
Coffee, cake and home-grown herbal teas, dips & biscuits will be made and served by the CWA Ashburton.
