Garden Visit to Nick's food forest in Repton

Saturday November 23rd, 10am - 1pm

Remember to seek out the sign-in sheet on arrival.
Please bring a plate to contribute to our shared lunch
Bring seeds and excess plants to share if you have any.

Nick has been designing permaculture gardens and water flow management for many years. Living in leafy Repton, he has been crafting his own integrated garden experience.

Nick says:
This garden has some small annual beds, a food forest of about 500 square metres and an acre of rainforest planting & regeneration. Seedsavers made a visit here two years ago and saw some recently installed water conservation measures. These measures are now working well. They include greywater diversion to vegies, blackwater integrated into food forest, swales, tank overflow spreader pipes and summer shade for annual vegies. The food forest is now better shaded, sheet mulched and has a variety of edible ground covers.  

You will need to bring a chair if you would like something to sit on other than the ground!

Coming? RSVP to obtain the address and so we know who’s attending, even if you already know how to get there.
