This month’s From the Ground Up workshop provides advice about combining plants and companion planting. Plants can be combined to be mutually beneficial to each other; by providing natural pest repellent or fertiliser, acting as taste and growth improvers, or working as pollinator and beneficial insect attractants. The practical activity is making a container garden using companion and seasonal plants. Please wear a hat and covered shoes.

Location: Meet at the Kitchen in the Garden

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.
