I like gardening and the thought of being able to grown my own produce delights me. However, I might say I’m not so good at it.
I also don’t have a big house with a backyard, but I do have a spacious balcony and that’s where I’m trying my ways of growing some herbs and tomatoes. They are not quite there yet, but together we will find our way to a healthy and beautiful garden. 🙂
Thinking about that I decided to attend a free Organic Gardening Workshop offered by the Sutherland Shire Council. It was on a sunny Saturday morning in May, at the Sutherland Shire Council Community Nursery, a very nice place to learn and also purchase some crops.
The workshop was amazing and super complete. We were in a small group, enough to share knowledge and grab all the information explained by the instructor. There was a bit of in-class discussion but 90% of the course happened outdoors, totally hands-on. They covered everything about organic gardening, from how to create an abundant and healthy ecosystem in your garden to managing pests organically and building a no dig garden.
Absolutely spot on! I left the place with a strong filling that I should move to a house with a nice backyard! 😜
I just wanted to try everything I’ve learned right away.
In case you are interested, the council runs this workshop several times a year, just have a look on their website to find the next sessions.
And don’t forget to reserve your spot as soon as possible as they run out of seats very quickly!
I’ll leave you now with some photos from that day:
