Here’s your chance to get totally practical about growing food in small spaces, and experience some yummy tastings as well! Full day, flexible program of edible gardening demonstrations and healthy food experiences. Come for the whole day, or choose a morning or afternoon session.  The Eat Your Balcony 2 Program includes practical gardening presentations on worm farming, organic pest & disease control; wicking container gardening & potting mix blending, as well as food-focussed presentations including sprouting, mushroom growing and making ‘green smoothies’ using edible weeds (the latter presented by Very Edible Gardens.) Plus there’s an opportunity to join in an informal Fossilisin’ Foods’ community cooking session, tasting dips and preserves made from neighbourhood surplus.

Between breaks you can also pick up some vegie seeds or worm castings from our EcoShop; browse our displays and and chat to the folks from Green Renters, V.E.G and Transition Town Port Phillip. Plus enjoy a vegie. BBQ lunch and afternoon tea!. Entry cost $4 to $10 by donation (sliding scale entry fees apply).

Sunday 22 August, 11am-4.30pm, Port Phillip EcoCentre, Cnr Blessington & Herbert Streets, St Kilda.

RSVP’s essential as places are limited. Contact Paula: 0417 501 383 / 9525 3102 / gardeners@ecocentre.com
