The SAGE Project is excited to be offering Backyard Veggie Gardening – a series of three, half-day workshops created to teach how to establish a successful self-sustaining vegetable patch at home. Starting and maintaining an edible vegetable garden isn’t really that hard – it requires some time, good guidance and a plan.
More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1818713811757896/ Alison Walsh – a successful home gardener – will be your guide through this series designed so you are learning and working on what’s appropriate throughout the season. Backyard Veggie Gardening is perfect for a beginner to gardening and wants to learn how to grow food, and is also ideal for those who have a garden but want to learn effective practices and useful skills to make their garden thrive. These workshops are very practical, so be prepared to get your hands in the dirt.
You can attend the entire series or just one of the half-day topics if you just need a refresher or some guidance.
Session 1 – Planning ~ Sunday 9 September 2018 (SAGE Garden, 110 Queen St, Moruya)
In the first session, you will formulate a plan – a plan of your garden and a plan of what to grow. Having a plan will help you get organised, be more efficient and grow quality produce with greater success.
Session 2 – Planting ~ Sunday 14 October 2018 (Alison’s Garden, Araluen Rd, Deua Valley)
In the planting workshop, you will look at your garden in more detail. This workshop will be held at Alison’s property, in the Deua Valley to give a great reference of a perfect example of both a kitchen garden for everyday produce and a larger garden for more substantial plants.
Session 3 – Problem Solving ~ Sunday 10 February 2019 (SAGE Garden, 110 Queen St, Moruya)
With three months between workshops, this last workshop will be a review of the season and work through solutions to some of the common problems you may have experienced through the summer growing season.
