Come and learn how to design your own native food forest creating a thriving eco-system with edible native plants. In this workshop, you will learn about building a forest garden, how to choose your native species, preparing for and planting your chosen species. We will also be sharing some ideas on how to use some of the native fruits, leaves, and flowers. This is a hands-on practical session where you get to help prepare, plant and mulch a number of guilds on the community garden site. Please wear sturdy closed shoes and bring a wheelbarrow if you are able, tools to clear grass and dig with as well as containers of water.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Gympie Community Garden!
