Urban overhaul, Otumoetai

Saturday 25 July 2020, 9:30am-3pm
Location: Otumoetai, register to find out where


We are doing an overhaul of a small backyard urban section in Tauranga town…there will be no lawn left!

This is an opportunity to see how much food you can grow in a small area. During the course of the day we will be focusing on;

  • Making wicking beds
  • Planting fruit trees and their guilds
  • Laying pathways
  • Constructing a berry and medicinal area

We have a couple of great workshops lined up as well.

This is a small area, we only have room for up to 12 people.

Our hosts will provide hot and cold drinks, and a lovely lunch.

What to bring:
-Gardening gloves
-Gardening tools (labelled with your name) – spade or shovel
-Water bottles
-Hat and sun protection and wet weather gear
– Any spare plants you may have from your own garden that may work for fruit tree guilds i.e lavender, garlic bulbs, calendula, jerusalem artichokes, thyme, rosemary, borage, lemon balm, bergamot etc.

To  register, fill out the form below. Your details will be emailed to the hosts who will contact you with further details on how to get there. Thank you!
