Event Description

This is your opportunity to see exactly how it’s done. By attending a Cob Oven Building workshop at the Beelarong Community Farm on Saturday 7th March, you will have the opportunity to learn with a specialist from Rockcote Enterprises who will demonstrate how easy it is using techniques that are centuries old. Secondly, and most importantly it will inspire a fantastic day with your family & friends where you will have gained the skills to build your oven.

You will love the opportunity to get your hands dirty mixing up clay and forming newly mixed straw and clay into the cob. By lunch time the fruit of everyone's labour, starts to show as lunch served on the day includes ‘bounty from the Beelarong Garden’! The workshop will run from 10am until 3pm. There is a limit of 20 participants. Bookings are essential - the cost is $10 for members and $20 for non-members. The fee includes a full ‘hands-on’ experience in building a cob oven, morning tea and lunch.

Sounds great!

You might want to edit out the RSVP on this Event listing. Many people don't read info to the end and think hitting "Will Attend" here amounts to a booking. People have turned up on the day to other Events thinking they are booked in.

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
