Square Foot Gardening, with Ken Clark from Waiheke

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.

The workshops cover everything from seeds to eating and building a square foot garden. Kit sets will be available on the day for purchase.
