Come and join the fun and learning at the launch of Kyneton Edible Gardens, a new initiative of the Kyneton Transition Hub. It will be launched with its first working bee and workshop on 24—25th March. This will be a mega-blitz that we hope will become a showcase for the town and for our group.

We promise a fun and productive time. Kyneton Edible Gardens group consists of people who come together as a community to help each other design and establish a sustainable, efficient and edible garden.

The location for our first working bee and workshop is a town block that belongs to one of our members. The activities will include: installing swales in a gently sloping backyard; revamping the chook run around the original chook house and providing small ponds for the ducks; establishing a herb spiral; rendering a north-facing wall to provide for a passion fruit vine; and planting vegetables and fruit trees.

There will be a workshop on brewing and using compost tea and you can take some home for your own garden.
No gardening experience is necessary.
Come for Saturday, Sunday or both.

Healthy lunch provided, with drinks and nibbles after 4 pm for those who wish to stay for a while.

Please bring your favourite gardening gloves and tools if you have them.
