Urban Kitchen Garden Workshops at Carriageworks

September 21st, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

We like gardening almost as much as we like bikes, and Carriageworks are starting up a Kitchen Garden project with free activities and workshops over the next few weeks, starting on 26 September.

CARRIAGEWORKS’ KITCHEN GARDEN PROJECT
A SERIES OF FREE COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES AND WORKSHOPS
PRESENTED BY CARRIAGEWORKS

At CarriageWorks we believe that creativity extends into all facets of life, including finding creative ways to save our planet.

CarriageWorks’ Kitchen Garden Project is a series of free community activities and workshops based on the notion of creative sustainability.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Under the guidance of sustainability expert, author and coach, Michael Mobbs, join us in building an organic kitchen garden from scratch. Whether you’re into organic homegrown vegies or saving on grocery bills, you’ll learn the principles of environmentally friendly ‘no-dig’ gardening for urban spaces.

To find out more, attend the free info session and screening of award-winning enviro-doco The Power of Community, then a limited group of people can join the evolving workshops including: construction of planter boxes; composting; worm farms; soil prep; seeds and germination; planting and plant care and finally, harvest.

WE INVITE YOU TO ATTEND THE FREE LAUNCH EVENT

The launch event includes an info session, followed by a free screening of the award-winning enviro-documentary, The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil.

After the film screening, join us for a drink at the bar and catch up with some of Sydney’s most passionate sustainability experts, gardeners and eco business leaders.

Speakers include:
Michael Mobbs, sustainability expert, author and coach
Ronni Kahn, founder of OzHarvest
Robyn Williamson, urban horticulturist & permaculture designer

Saturday 26 September, 1pm – 5pm | FREE ENTRY
