From the Ground Up is a four-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.

The final workshop in this series is about designing your own food forest garden by incorporating layers of plants, selecting suitable beneficial plant combinations and using your garden’s aspect to form microclimates. The practical activity will be set in the orchard, where we will mark out and design our 3 metre by 3 metre small food forest. Please wear a hat and covered shoes.

Venue: 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.
