Tauranga Suburban Half Day Permablitz
Saturday 9th December 2017, 9.30am – 1.30pm
Location: Greerton, Tauranga register to find out more
We are developing a vegetable garden and food forest at a suburban home in Tauranga. The large section is flat and north facing.
This will be the first of two or three half-day Permablitzes at this location with a smaller number of people than is typical for a Permablitz (around 10 people).
Possible tasks include: preparing vegetable beds, erect greenhouse, construct gate and fence for wind shelter, plant trees, construct shade for worm farms, organise garage shelves and tool storage area, paint and line strawberry boxes.
Possible workshops will be: air layering plants, double digging, edible weeds, perennial vegetables, bokashi.
Anyone is welcome to teach a short workshop on a sustainable living concept so if you have any special skills that will contribute to the learning of the participants please mention this at registration.
We will have a shared pot luck lunch. The host will provide morning tea.
Hope to see you there!
