Grow your own food with Casey Joy


There's nothing more satisfying than growing your own produce. A garden offers us all a way to slow down, reengage with the natural world and find a deeper appreciation for some of life’s simplest pleasures; eating a fresh tomato straight off the vine, watching insects flit from plant to plant and making a meal for friends that you have grown yourself.

In this one hour seminar class Casey Joy will share with you the beauty of growing your own food. This class will cover topics like preparing your soil, selecting the right plants for the season, growing from seed, how to layout your vege garden and, of course, troubleshooting for when things may not go to plan.

It's the perfect class for gardening beginners and is designed to take you from garden to table, although experienced gardeners may also get something out of this informative workshop packed full of hints and tips. 

You'll leave with the confidence to get your vege garden started at home or improve on your current practices, whether it be a full garden space or you are growing in containers.

Casey takes a spray-free, organic approach to gardening to help increase insect and bird diversity, and protect native fauna.
