Learn how to maximise the productivity from your vegie patch using all natural techniques, including crop rotation cycles. Then we look at great vegies to grow over the cooler months, how to start them from seed and how to look after them so that they produce well for you. You will be required to do a little bit of preparation for the workshop so that you get the most out of it on the day.

The workshop runs from 1.00pm to 4.00pm which gives us time to enjoy some afternoon tea with home made goodies. If the forecast is looking doubtful, we will cancel it from the Friday before and notify you. However, it may be cold, so please dress according to the weather as some of the workshop will be carried out outside in the garden.
