Grow your own crops in containers with a water reservoir to reduce watering and keep your plants moist for maximum growth. ‘Wicking beds’ can come in all sizes and this workshop will help you decide if they are right for you. See examples of homemade and bought versions. Get ideas on how to make your own at a scale that suits what you want to grow.
Please arrive at the centre 15 minutes before the start to allow yourself time to park and get settled in. Please enter through the front entrance on Karamu Road and sign in at reception. We’ll start on time so if you arrive late and the door is locked, please ring the bell.
