Edible Forest Garden workshop
April 12, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Forest Gardening lets nature do most of the work, while you enjoy the fruits, vegetables, fungi, nuts, fibres and timber growing in your own backyard. They are modeled on young woodlands with a huge variety of crops growing over multiple layers, each plant interacting with the other to produce a low maintenance garden and stable, healthy soils.
Join Hannah Moloney from Good Life Permaculture to learn the theory and practice of forest gardening. Hannah’s experience in sustainability sees her working around the world teaching permaculture design. She has taught alongside David Holmgren (co-founder of Permaculture) and David Jacke (author of Edible Forest Gardens), holds a diploma in Permaculture design and for the past decade has been designing, growing and managing permaculture based projects.

Hannah has great energy, enthusiasm and knowledge!
This workshop will be held in two neighbouring venues.

The second venue is the South Hobart community garden which we’ll walk to as a group (this takes approximately 5 minutes). Alternatively you can drive/ride there, ample parking is available at both venues.
