Workshop: Square foot gardening, with Ken Clark from Waiheke
This is a unique chance to learn from one of New Zealand’s most successful square foot gardeners, Ken Clark. We are very happy that Ken is coming to Auckland for a one day workshop to share his knowledge. Square foot gardening is a perfect solution for city gardens. It produces 70% more food than conventional gardens with less work.
About Ken Clark and Square foot gardening:
Ken first learnt about square foot gardening about 20 yrs ago. He proceeded to do it his own way for 17 yrs, 3 yrs ago he retired to Waiheke Island & started SFG in earnest. Ken lives on a small size section and produces an abundance of fruit and veges using the Square foot gardening method. SFG advocates growing only what you need on a weekly basis. It is a fantastic system for busy people who wish to have a more sustainable life and great home grown food with the minimum fuss and effort.
What to expect:
The workshops cover everything from seeds to eating and building a square foot garden. Kit sets will be available on the day for purchase.
A flyer will be given out outlining the workshop.
