Description

Feel that you are missing out on growing your own veggies and herbs due to lack of space? By using containers, pots and vertical space you can transform a balcony, courtyard, patio or windowsill into a hugely productive garden.

In this hands on workshop you will learn how to maximise your small space to create an abundant oasis of food, herbs and ornamentals.


Trainer Bio:

With many years working as a primary teacher, community development worker and horticulturalist, Carol combines these three passions by running school garden programs with Cultivating Community and facilitating adult workshops at CERES.  Drawing garden wisdom from permaculture principles, conventional horticulture and chats with elderly neighbours, she loves sharing her enthusiasm for everything connected with growing and learning in natural environments. Carol is studying a Master of Urban Horticulture at Melbourne University (Burnley) majoring in urban food production.

CERES

Vendor since 2013

CERES - Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, is an award winning, not-for-profit, sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.

It is also a thriving community, an urban farm, Australia’s largest deliverer of environmental education, an event and conference venue and a place rich with social and cultural diversity. CERES is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice.

Built on a decommissioned rubbish tip that was once a bluestone quarry, today CERES is a vibrant eco-oasis. 350,000 people visit CERES each year. Many more engage with us through our Sustainable Schools program which takes sustainable education into schools across the state.

CERES’ green technology displays, buildings, education and training programs and social enterprises (CERES’ Organic Market, Café, Permaculture Nursery and Fair Food organics delivery) demonstrate food security, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiencies, renewables and water conservation in action.

CERES is a model for a future with sustainability, innovation and connectedness at its heart.

Come, be welcome, you never know what you will find on our rambling paths.

This is a great workshop. It involves a mix of indoor interactive teaching and hands on outdoor experience with potting seeds and seedlings. You also get to check out the vegetable gardens and compost setup in Ceres. Carol is an engaging and enthusiastic teacher!
