Event Description

This workshop series will teach you how to create and manage a healthy, productive organic food garden growing your own vegetables and herbs. You will be studying both the theory and practice of organic gardening. There are four workshops in the series, held each fortnight over a period of two months. The topics covered at each workshop session are:
1.Planning your food garden and working your soil.
2.Planting and garden care.
3.Dealing with pests and diseases.
4.Harvesting and seed saving.

The workshop series is suitable for beginner to moderate level experienced food gardeners. You will be able to see the concepts applied in the presenter's garden and work with these in a practical way during the workshop sessions. The workshop series is conducted in the beautiful gardens of Peter Kearney, Samford, Brisbane.

Peter Kearney is an experienced organic gardener and workshop presenter. Peter writes extensively about food gardening and his web site at www.cityfoodgrowers.com.au provides gardeners all over Australia and internationally with easy access to answers for their most common food gardening questions.

The workshops are held from from 9.15am to 1.30pm at 203 Wights Mt Road, Wights Mountain via Samford, Brisbane. The dates are as follows: Saturday series: 24th October, 7th and 21st November, 5th December.

The workshop fee for 16 hours of organic gardening training within the four workshops is $240 (discount of $20 is given to paid members of my web site). A scrumptious morning tea is included at each session, as well as comprehansive written workshop materials. An online follow up service is also provided to support your gardening questions.

Numbers are limited to 12 people for each series workshop, so full payment is preferred prior to the first event starting to ensure your place is confirmed.
