Waterwise Wicking Bed Workshops
30 November, 2019 - 1 December, 2019
Learn how to make successful waterwise wicking beds & grow incredible edibles! Options for all backyards, all budgets.
Free informative & practical two hour workshops will explore how to make successful waterwise wicking beds.
Discover a self-contained raised bed solution for you; whether you’re renting, have limited space, have grass or trees competing with your veg or are just tired of constant watering!
The difference with wicking beds is the built-in reservoir which supplies water from the bottom up, getting moisture straight to the roots, where plants really need it & reducing evaporation! We’ll also cover other secrets to vege growing success, like compost and crop rotations.
