At this exciting upcoming blitz, the couple have spent the last two years slowly implementing a food producing oasis in suburban Tauranga. They are finally ready to redesign their backyard and provide useful workshops on what they have achieved.
This will be a good opportunity to see how permaculture can be done in a suburban area, learn how to install a small rain water tank, lasagna gardening, basic fencing and the practicality of converting a hillside into terraced garden beds.
During the course of the day we will be focusing on:
o Converting lawn to garden beds
o Building a fence to keep pets out
o Lasagna gardening and growing soil
o Rainwater tank install
o Pallet Compost setup
o Learn about rainwater harvesting
o Learn about terraced gardening
o Learn about grape and berry trellising
This is a small backyard which can accommodate 15 – 20 people. Plenty of parking on the street.
