Saturday 17 October 9.30am – 12.30pm | Clare Showgrounds

Looking to develop your own piece of paradise but not sure where to start? 

Come to this workshop to learn the fundamentals of creating your perfect sustainable property and understand how to develop a masterplan ensuring success.

This is a satellite Sophie’s Patch event the day before the SA Autumn Garden Festival  meaning you can make this a weekend gardening destination!

This extended workshop will cover zoning concepts to help you manage water use and create microclimates for more enjoyable living, the basics of soil improvement, optimal planting times, work out where to locate productive patches such as vegie gardens and fruit trees, incorporate fowls, bees and beneficial bugs……………… and much more.

Sophie’s experience of creating her own garden from a bare paddock over the last eight and a half years, with summer temperatures often hotter than Adelaide, and six to seven months of frosts (down to minus 5 degrees) give her the hands-on experience to run this workshop.

She will use examples from her own garden to showcase how these principles have been used in a harsh environment successfully.

Come along with your notebook and burning questions relating to developing your own garden and Sophie will endeavour to weave in answers as she goes.

Includes delicious afternoon tea from local cafe @CogWebs Café and the @Coffee Cubicle
