*******CODEMO PERMABLITZ NUMERO CINCO*******
The wonderful Willie (from Chile`) is hosting the next Permablitz
backyard makeover this *Sunday July 2nd from 11:30amish*.
Willie has a great site & has done lots of work already including:
*Establishing a host of fruit & medicinal trees with which he can
demonstrate his grafting prowess including; Avocado, Fig, Lemon,
Lemon verbena, Nectarine, Peach & a number of medicinal varieties.
Bring your cuttings for some grafting demos and to swap
*Preparing & planting vegie / herb beds – with loads of room
awaiting the planting - we'll be in the first quarter of the new
moon, which bodes well for leafy annuals such as the cabbage
family (brocolli, cauliflower, etc) (not to mention being a good
time for transplanting and grafting). Bring your spare seeds and
seedlings to plant & swap
*Initiating raised no-dig beds that utilise ground contours for
best water absorbtion. Further construction of these beds will
take place so you can see the process in action.
On the day we'll also cover:
*Mulching workshop! Learn what mulching is and eleven reasons it
rocks! Willie has developed an infamous locally based resource
collection strategy which has allowed him to compost & build the
soil. Let’s put the icing on the cake & see what the magic of
mulch can do.
*Utilising space & available resources; We'll look at some
trellis-value-adding to North facing fence ideal for Kiwi-fruit /
Passionfruit vines, and a hot spot on the hot water service for
germination / sprouting rack, and Willie's quit street frontage
for permasalsa, permasoccer, permafrisbie, hop-scotch – you name it!
*Kitchen workshop heaven; Willie’s amazing butter-bean soup: Flour
grinding & sourdough bread making & why not a bit more juicing?
*Visiting the neighbours - Pat from Italy has offered to show us
around his garden too!
