Backyard Veggie Gardening – a series of four, half-day workshops. The final session in the series is on Problem Solving ~ Sunday 16 February 2020 (SAGE Garden, 110 Queen St, Moruya)

Leading on from session 2 on Planting in September and the local backyard gardening tour in November, gardeners have spent the summer months in their own garden, and it’s time for participants to share what they have developed, grown and learnt from their specific garden.

In the final session of the series, Alison will review the season and work through solutions to some of the common problems you may have experienced through the summer growing season. In this workshop you will learn:

  • Pests and diseases – how to prevent,
  • Green manure and soil maintenance,
  • Managing gluts and preparing for the hungry gap
  • Preparing for the cooler months, and
  • Lessons learnt and planning for the next season.

This workshop is ideal for anyone who is interested in learning about the issues they faced during the season – even if you haven’t attended the previous workshops, this is an invaluable session to learn what you can do better next time.

This workshop is a stand-only and can be attended without attending any of the workshops in the series.
