Residents within the Centenary area can learn some gardening skills this Saturday, May 20, at the Rocks Riverside Park in Seventeen Mile Rocks.

Two practical gardening workshops are scheduled at the Rocks Riverside Park as part of Brisbane City Council’s Active Parks program. The program brings free or low-cost activities at over 50 local parks in Brisbane to improve health, fitness and well-being of residents.

Grow Organic Food

Locals can learn to grow organic food through a workshop scheduled at 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. In this workshop, participants will learn practical skills in gardening, including growing organic food in small spaces. After the workshop, participants can take home the wicking pot that they have made.

This workshop can help locals to grow their own food, ensuring that they are eating healthy, organic veggies and fruits that are devoid of artificial fertilisers and pesticides.

Self-Watering Planter Workshop

Following the organic gardening session, there will be another gardening-related workshop, where participants can learn to make their own self-watering planter box. This workshop is perfect for busy folks who tend to forget or may not have time to water plants daily.

With self-watering planters, gardeners need not worry about their plants drying up when they go on vacation or leave the house for days or weeks. In this workshop, gardeners will learn to make a fruit and vegetable pyramid from self-watering boxes.

Tower Ad

This workshop will happen from 3 pm to 5 pm.

Participants must book prior to joining the two events. To book, call Roman at 0434 842 870 or email spurtupia@gmail.com.
