Bloomin’ Great Berries!

Sunday 22nd April at 11.00am

Imagine stepping out into your garden and returning with bowls of jewel-like berries, freshly harvested and ready to eat.

Avoiding the expensive supermarket price-tag and having enough to not just eat fresh but also freeze or preserve, and also even share amongst your family and friends, you'll be the most popular neighbour in the neighbourhood!

At this ultimate berry workshop, Steve Burns, the very entertaining Scot, will teach you all about soil preparation, berry varieties, planting techniques , propagation, trellising, pruning, and the complete care and maintenance of berries.

Questions are always encouraged, and you'll leave this workshop feeling inspired to give home-grown berries a go!

Presented by Steve Burns. Steve has an 8 acre Permaculture property 'Chestnut Farm' in Invermay, just outside Ballarat, featuring extensive vegetable gardens, berries, and heritage fruit trees, and where he conducts Permaculture and related gardening skills workshops, as well as an annual PDC course. He also champions many local farmers markets, and founded the Ballarat Permaculture Guild in 2008.
