Growing a humming garden with lots of produce, summer shade and flowers is very satisfying and important for the environment.

Petra will show you how to create or improve a productive garden using minimum water and effort.

Learn how to “drought-proof” your garden as much as possible. You will see what works in our food forest and we will look at little tricks like passive watering (don’t lift a finger once installed!), and getting the most out of your additives like manure, compost, bio-char – natural enhancements, chemical free.

You will go home with a list of possible actions you can easily do at home.

Presenter: Petra Kahle convenes the Food Forest Ashburton Group which looks after the food forest lovingly and thoughtfully. She is the author of the booklet Menu for Good Housekeeping and Planet Care.

For the Kids: Water games and messy mud play, as well as making and serving lemonade.

Also: Coffee, cake and home-grown herbal teas, dips & biscuits will be made and served by the local CWA Ashburton for you.
