Want to grow your own veggies but have no backyard? Learn how to turn your balcony, courtyard or small space into a mini-food garden with Anne Gibson at Veggie Village, 9-11am Sunday October 17th.

Veggie Village promotes sustainability and community participation through growing organic fruit and vegetables at Di Hirst Oval, Rufous St, Peregian Beach.  Workshops are $15.

Anne said "don't let a small space prevent you from growing some of your own food -- with a little inspiration and a few clever ideas you can start growing a pick and pluck salad garden in just one pot."  Even renters can grow a portable garden or use a windowsill that gets a fair amount of sunshine each day to grow a culinary herb garden.

"It's incredibly satisfying to just step outside your kitchen and pick stir fry greens or fresh tasty herbs and a great way for children to start growing in their own pot. Small spaces mean less time spent on maintenance but can be very productive. With some simple design knowhow and problem-solving tips, you can have abundant mini edible gardens year round," Anne said. "Well designed micro gardens can also be spaces of beauty, fragrance and improve indoor air quality in your home."

Anne's workshop will cover design, selection of suitable plants and containers, special needs of small space gardens and practical hands-on 'how to' tips.

Sunday 17th October

With the rising cost of food, it makes sense to grow at least some of your needs at home.  Whether you have a small space, balcony or windowsill that you'd like to grow an edible garden or are renting and need ideas on temporary, mini portable gardens that you can take with you, you can get started right now.  If you want to learn how to make wise use of the space you have, then come along to this workshop where you will:
*    learn ways to save money and be more sustainable by growing your own food and garden supplies.
*    find out how to save time & avoid expensive mistakes by learning about the special needs of small gardens.
*    be inspired with new ideas for pots and containers, growing indoors/outdoors and multi-purpose edible gardens.  

The workshop will focuses on:
1.    Design - Wise use of space and resources
2.    Choosing Plants - that meet your particular needs and what grows well in pots and small spaces
3.    Special needs of small gardens -- Fertilising, watering and maintenance to grow nutrient dense food

Small gardens can be just as productive, much easier to maintain and are less time-intensive if approached the right way.  Find out how to make your own potting mix, avoid common problems, plant for year round abundance and through clever design, have colour, beauty and fragrance even in an edible garden.  Includes practical hands-on activities and take home notes.
