Event description
Learn how the new wicking beds at Garrong Park will give local residents bountiful produce all year round!

About this event

Are you thinking about installing wicking beds or have wicking beds already that you're not sure how to use or maintain?

Wicking beds are a type of upside-down watering system well suited to growing veggies in Australian conditions. They use much less water and – even better – require less maintenance than conventional garden beds.

Join local edible gardening business and wicking bed experts Very Edible Gardens (VEG) in this free workshop which explains the science and practicalities of wicking beds, their construction and key components, and how to grow in them for an abundance of delicious produce. The demonstration is taking place at the site of the wicking bed planters VEG has installed in the newly created Garrong Park in Brunswick, Moreland.

No experience is necessary and residents local to Garrong Park are encouraged to participate and meet others looking forward to community gardening in the park. You may even be inspired to get into some small scale growing at home!

This My Smart Garden is proudly presented by the City of Moreland. Please note that this is an event for City of Moreland / Melbourne gardeners only. Gardening is very context specific so if you live outside Melbourne, please contact your council to find out what free sustainable gardening events are available locally.

QR Code check-in with vaccination certificate and masks will be required.

If the event is booked out please join the waiting list to be notified if places become available. If you have any questions please contact ltozzi@moreland.vic.gov.au
