SHARED LUNCH, CUTTING WORKSHOP and PLANT SWAP
Northland Tree Croppers and Whangarei Small Farm Owners are holding a midwinter shared lunch and plant swap. Our shared lunches are world famous in Whangarei and there will be lots of other plant nuts and lifestyle blockers to socialise with. This is a wonderful opportunity to find loving homes for your excess plants, cuttings, scionwood, seeds, produce, etc. It's also a great, no cost way to try different and unusual plants.
When: Sunday 25th July, 11am-3pm
Where: Kaurihohore Hall, 16 Apotu Rd, Kauri.
The Northland Edible Garden Trail is coming to Whangarei and the Mid North!
Aiming to showcase some of the best edible gardens in the Whangarei and Kerikeri region between the 4th - 8th February 2022 (over Waitangi weekend).
We are looking for gardens. Do you have a sustainable backyard full of edible inspiration?
We want to share gardens that showcase techniques for growing fruit and veg and gardens with a sustainability focus such as saving and using rainwater, composting, worm farms and making the best use of your land for productive crops.
A range of garden styles are relevant from small city gardens, large farm gardens, commercial gardens, school, community and Marae gardens with different points of interest such as greenhouses, herb gardens, rongoa, chickens, composting toilets, aquaponics, hydroponics and any other gardens with a fruit and vege.
What it involves. Gardens will be placed on a tour map with opening hours and times that suit the host. Funding will be offered to assist any preparation and there is the opportunity to hold workshops, sell/swap produce, plants/seeds, offer refreshment or partner with a like minded organisation wanting to fundraise.
Who are we?
We are a small group of Northlanders who love growing fruit and veges and want to inspire others to do the same. This garden trail is being run as a not-for-profit event with the help of the Kai Ora Fund.
