Vera Street Community Garden has been actively conducting workshops that help Brisbane City Council in their efforts to cultivate greener communities. Consisting of locals and non-local residents, the association is dedicated to helping people establish and maintain organic vegetable garden beds for shared consumption and rehabilitating the Toowong Creek.
Tim Davies from All You Can Eat Gardens will be facilitating a hands-on workshop on making a no-dig garden out of recycled timber and compost from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, 13 May 2018.
No-dig gardens are an excellent way to transform wasted spaces into productive food gardens. This type of garden can be built on lawns, weeds, hardpan clay, and even on concrete. This workshop will show you how you can do it on your own.
Attendees will also learn the necessary skills to make their own raised bed at home.
Tim Davies has been engaged with Permaculture and organic farming through woofing, teaching, and designing since 2008. His studies as an Environmental Engineer helped him develop his understanding of natural systems and design.
