Free Event ~ All Welcome ~

This is an open invitation for the Coffs Harbour region to attend the Community Gardens first food forest workshop series.

We will cover some of the theory behind edible forest gardening as well as being a hands on experience to get you comfortable in establishing your own productive environment.

The edible forest garden is a perennial polyculture that is designed to change and evolve like a natural forest while providing food and enjoyment for humans, birds, animals and the earth.

We are providing a series of workshops, each day focusing on different elements of our food forest.

Workshop 1: WATER
Sunday 17th June, 9am – 2pm
Swales, water management and building access pathways

Workshop 2: FOREST

Workshop 3: MANAGEMENT

We provide: Materials, machinery, plants, and knowledge.

Have fun, be inspired, share in the abundance!
