Chemical free gardens to nurture people, bees & beneficial insects

Sunday 9 August 1-4 $85

This class is about going organic.

With all the marketing in the nurseries and hardware stores encouraging you to buy chemicals to boost plant health, reduce insects and get bigger, better results, it can be really hard to work out what you really need for your garden, especially if you want to grow clean food without the nasties.

So, having practiced strict organic production and taught it formally and informally for decades now, I’d like to share with you, the ways you can avoid the chemicals and really add health, vitality and resilience to your garden, flavour to your food and fewer chemicals to your plate.

This class will take you on a practical journey through the alternatives to chemical growing, so you can enjoy a healthier life and a healthier you. And when you grow without the herbicides, fungicides and artificial fertilisers, your food will taste better and your soil will improve as a result.

So, we will look at how to enlist the help of beneficial fungi, macropods, birds and insects in your garden.

We’ll explore planting that encourages bees and beneficials.

You’ll get your hands dirty and create good stuff for an organic plot.

And we’ll work out how it all fits together to make your garden and body, work properly again.

Spring Garden Party

Oh Joy!! This one is still happening, but its now fully booked!

Sunday 30 August 1-4  $90

This Garden party was to be held for Mother’s Day, but we all know what happened to prevent us from enjoying the day together! So, we’ve transferred it to today and have the bonus creative event of making tiny succulents in terracotta pots which you’ll take home.

A Garden party begins with canapes by the new/old Slab Cottage, a project we started and completed during the lockdown. It’s so gorgeous.

We take a tour of the garden, exploring edible flowers, and enjoy a lovely afternoon tea snuggled up with the fleecy rugs at pretty tables in the garden. Enjoy afternoon tea from fine china, herbal teas and warm scones, jam and cream. Once you are feeling full and satisfied, you’ll have the chance to make a pretty miniature pot with succulents- Perfect for a desk or windowsill.

At the Garden Party you will also receive a gift bag with a copy of my book ‘A Delicious Bunch, Growing and Cooking with Edible Flowers’, and some organic goodies inside.
