Often overlooked, perennial food growing makes so much sense for the health of your garden and a changing climate. Deep rooted, sturdier and easier to grow than the popular annuals, perennials are the best addition to a new and experienced food growers garden.

This Master Class will discuss how perennial food gardens create more shade, more cooling, provide stunning vistas in your patch and with less soil disturbance, help build healthy soil and store more carbon under our feet.   This session will introduce you to whole new range of edibles that are more resilient, flavorsome and nutritious. Many aren’t recognised by pests and are just left well alone. The gardeners dream. 

With a need to broaden the variety of food we grow to improve both resilience and nutrition, there is no better time to introduce yourself to perennial edibles.

This session is take by Teresa Day, see bio below.

Other topics include – Mulch and Organic Matter Application Explained, No Dig Gardening, Biochar 101, and Getting deep with soil - How soil health effects water retention, pests and produce nutrition. Book the Series Package for discount.  Friends of SGA receive a 15% discount on all Master Classes.
