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.
