High Protein Vegetarian Meals From Your Garden

Are you vegetarian or vegan or cook for a person who loves plant-based food? You may have concerns about achieving sufficient protein in your (or their) diet. As a long-term vegetarian who doesn’t eat meat or fish, I have developed a huge array of absolutely stunning vegetarian and vegan meals that provide enough protein to keep everyone satisfied. Much of each meal comes from the garden too, and is perfectly fresh and full of life.

At this class we will harvest from the garden then make together, delectable high protein vegetarian meals that satisfy and delight the taste buds. You’ll gain insight into how I combine foods, plan for harvest in the garden and how to prepare a variety of dishes that contribute to health and vitality.

This class is very popular, as many people are stumped with what to make when their child says ‘I’m vegetarian’ or when a vegetarian is on the dinner guest list. You’ll have a selection of ideas and inspirational ideas to take home.

Espalier Fruit Trees & General Fruit Tree Pruning Techniques

This hands-on class is a beauty!

You’ll learn how to grow and train apples and stone fruits for the subtropics in the narrowest of spaces.

This year we had super crops from each on our espaliered plants! It’s an ancient art, perfected by the French and embraced across the world. It’s perfect for our smaller blocks and for narrow areas where you’d love fruit trees but dont have loads of room.

We also cover what fruit trees to choose, how to fertilise and care for trees, and will cover general fruit tree pruning in this class.

You’ll take home your new knowledge to produce healthy, abundant fruits. Class includes notes and afternoon tea.
