If you've visited Torello Farm and felt inspired by the herb gardens spilling out of apple crates out the front, this workshop is for you.
Wicking beds are self-watering vegetable gardens that draw water from a built-in reservoir below. They're perfect for holiday homes or any garden that can't (or won't) be watered regularly.
In this hands-on workshop, the Torello team will walk you through creating your own wicking bed at home.
Topics covered include:
- what are wicking beds and the science behind how they work
- what materials are required
- suitable soils
- suitable plants
- incorporating worms
- ongoing maintenance
The workshop includes a hot or cold drink and some delicious home-grown nibbles from the farm. Tickets available via the website.
