Want to grow your own herbs for the kitchen to add fresh flavor to your cooking and save money and wastage from buying bunches from the shops?

About this Event

Interested in herbal remedies but not sure where to start?

4 x 4 or 6 x 6. How many stakes will you use? Free form or over a mould? Weaving and twining. Big or small? ………….That will depend entirely what garden materials are available to use at the time.This universal method of beginning a basket allows you to view your garden waste in a whole new light. And what is waste anyway?

From 10am till 4pm gives us plenty of time to explore and make to our hearts content, with time for lunch of home made soups and cakes made from produce from the garden, and a walk and talk in Sophie’s early spring garden. A fabulous way to spend the day. 

This is a strictly limited special event with a maximum of 15 people, morning tea and coffee on arrival and lunch included.

Numbers are limited so get in early.
