On Saturday October 22nd, we are holding a market garden workshop at Bream Creek Community Garden to learn practical actions for securing healthy food futures.
This is set to be an inspiring workshop featuring gardening legend and renowned author Steve Solomon, biochar whiz Christina Giuici, and community gardeners Louise Sales and Bec Kelley, focussing on the topics of local food security, the importance of community and market gardens, soil health and nutrient-dense food, and the benefits of biochar. With an incredible 70 people having RSVP’d, this event reached full capacity within 2 days!
Lunch will be generously provided by Orlando Plenty, using fresh and tasty produce from the Bream Creek Community Garden. After enjoying a delicious meal, workshop goers will have the chance to take part in a biochar making workshop with Christina Giudici, from The New Black Biochar, and learn about its benefits- for example, boosting the fertility of soil and its ability to withstand the elements.
A huge thank you to our guest speakers for sharing your time and knowledge with us.
This event is part of Landcare Tasmania's 2022 Outreach Program. Supported by the State Government's Landcare Action grants, The New Black Biochar, 24 Carrot Gardens, Bream Creek Community Market Garden with catering by Orlando Plenty.
