Event Description

Leonie Shanahan, well- known around the Sunshine Coast for her Edible School Gardens programs and Organic Vegetable Gardening Workshops, has been creating thriving vegetable gardens with her ‘No-Dig’ method for years. 

A ‘No-Dig’ vegetable garden is often called a Lasagne garden due to having many layers, repeated, and this is the method Leonie will demonstrate with us. 

It's all about getting your soil/garden bed right to have the best quality vegetables growing - using less water and requiring less maintenance once established. 

This is a hands-on workshop; we will be making a ‘no-dig’ garden so bring a hat, water and gloves.

These FREE events and workshops are open to everyone in the community, not just members and volunteers at the Gardens and there is no need to book a place.

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.
