Winter Food Forest; Walk, Talk & Taste
Date(s) - July 28, 2019
Time - 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
This is a third-party event not organised by Permablitz. We've added it because we reckon it looks pretty good!
Location - Edible Eden Design
Take this rare opportunity to visit Karen’s own food forest, Gunyah in Pascoe Vale South for an intimate guided tour of what’s on offer in winter. Karen’s garden produces food all year round and there are a number of unusual edible plants that make this possible in winter, such as perennial bell pepper, avocado, yacon and choko. Learn how to grow more winter edibles, from annual to perennial, and reduce your reliance on shop bought produce. Notes and a Gunayh garden plant list are provided as well as a packet of seeds saved from the garden to get you started. Organic teas and coffee are included.
We are no longer holding large Open Gardens so these small events and private garden tours are the only way to visit the garden
