Green, Workshop

From the Ground Up is a 4 part workshop series on how to garden and grow plants sustainably. The methods and practices in the workshops are designed to restore and nurture the environment and to assist you in growing your garden harmoniously with nature. 

Each workshop is independent of the others and you do not need to attend them all.

This month’s workshop is about creating and building healthy, living soil by turning your waste into a resource. You will receive information about what the soil needs to stay healthy and how to enrich the soil giving your plants the best opportunity to grow and thrive. Practical activity is to build a no dig garden.

Please wear a hat and covered shoes.

Location: Meet at the Kitchen in the Garden.

Location:  Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha, 152 Mt Coot-tha Road, Toowong

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.
