Event Description

Making a Wicking Garden Bed with Roman Spur

Sunday June 19, 1:00pm – 4.30pm FREE

The wicking method is a water efficient technique for garden beds saving up to 70% of water usage. This hands on workshop will focus on converting an existing colorbond garden bed into a wicking bed. We will also show how to create a self-watering planter box. Participants will gain practical step-by-step experience in making a wicking bed from recycled materials which they can use in their own gardens.
