Event Details

Gardening - Produce beyond the patch

Food production in urban settings can be so much more than maintaining a vegetable patch. During this session, participants will gain an understanding of orchard and food forest design, suitable for children’s services.  It will include practical information about necessary horticultural techniques including soil preparation, plant selection and risk assessment, irrigation, pest control, and harvesting.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the hidden benefits of fruit orchards in education and care settings
  • Explore how to design and maintain an orchard in small and large urban spaces
  • Learn how to create a bush tucker pantry in your gardens.

Facilitator:  Jenn Reed

Deeply embedded in the power of our natural environment to nourish health and wellbeing, Jenn’s approach is grounded in 20 years experience in early years education. She has qualifications in both sustainable landscape design and children’s services. Her passion is crafting outdoor spaces that help people connect with nature, each other and themselves. When not designing gardens and play spaces, you may find Jenn perusing farmers markets in search of local produce or indeed in her own garden.
