Food Plants for a Dry Summer
Robyn Ford
Last summer the rain came late and didn't last long.  What food plants
survived, what did well and how do we use them?  The talk will be
followed by a short garden ramble and chat over a cuppa.

Bookings are NOT required for any of these workshops unless specified.


All workshops are free.

Workshops commence at 9:30 am unless otherwise specified and duration is approximately 1½ to 2 hours.

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.
