About this Event

Join EcoMatters organic teaching garden designer and coordinator, Meg Liptrot, to create a community kai ‘terrace’ garden.

Last year we built a beautiful bamboo fence with Bambusero (pictured). This Ecofest we’ll be assembling an informal terrace on the slope below. Once the terraces are built, the beds will be back-filled and planted with kai for passers by. Making use of free/low cost resources, such as logs cut from a fallen tree in our garden (a casualty of cyclone Gabrielle), we will add to the foraging potential of the street, and demonstrate food can be grown almost anywhere!

**No experience necessary, our gardens are all about experimentation and trying new things.**

There are two sessions to choose from:

Friday 15 March and / or Saturday 16 March from 11-2pm

Bookings required – max 15pp per session

Koha to secure your spot and help with costs

  • Please bring a drink bottle and some snacks
