What’s it all about?

Ever wanted to:

  • cut the cost of your grocery bill?
  • become more self-sufficient?
  • have more input / control of what you eat?
  • make an edible weed salad?
  • host a foraging expedition?
  • avoid pesticides?
  • contribute to sustainability?
  • learn about worms?

Thought you couldn’t because you, your best mate, his sister, a drum kit and your two cats share a bedsit in a high-rise apartment block in the middle of the city?


What will we cover?

In less time than it takes to watch a movie, we are going to smash through some simple, succinct and practical ‘how-to’s. This will focus on growing, finding, sharing and fertilising your own food in small spaces, apartments, urban dwellings and communities.

**Please note this class is aimed at inner-city dwellers and folk with small growing spaces, this is NOT a full gardening / veggie patch / farming class though if that’s your interest you are still most welcome to attend**

We will begin with enough basic information to get you started on your grow-know:

  • what to grow in containers and how
  • sprouting, why and how
  • equipment, start-up costs and requirements: how to make and source your own
  • more resources than you could poke a garden stake at
  • photos, videos and real-life examples
  • basic weed identification and where to go for more info (like how to use/cook)
  • urban foraging and foraging etiquette

And if we get time, some more challenging skills like:

  • small worm farms and bench top composts
  • seed saving
