Learn how to convert a piece of lawn into a new growing space for vegetables, fruit trees, shrubs or perennials – without breaking your back or divorcing your partner! This workshop will explore the benefits and techniques of sheet mulching to create new growing beds. The presentation will include information on soil, compost, weeds, and touch on related permaculture principles.
After the presentation and lunch, we’ll build a new garden bed in my yard. It will be a great way to learn, work together and socialize!
Bring a mug for coffee/tea, your own lunch, warm clothes, and shovel and gloves to participate in the hands-on portion of the workshop.
Register by visiting www.wildgreen.ca and go to “Workshops”. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
