What to expect:
Kens workshops are designed to show you how easy it is to feed your family with a maximum food production on minimum space. Ken keeps his trees small as he lives on a small section. Keeping his trees small makes it easier to reach the fruit and leaves space for more trees.

In this workshop you will learn how to prune and maintain your fruit trees to get maximum food production.  When is the best time to prune and how to do it so the tree does not get damaged. This is a practical, hands on workshop with a simple how to do it yourself handout.

About Ken Clark:
Ken has been gardening all his life with the main focus on food production. He grew up on a farm and back then you relied on your own garden to get your dinner on the table. When Ken was 12 his parents divorced and he had to take over all the major digging in the garden and his mum did the planting.

He now lives on Waiheke on a 850 m section and produces food in abundancy to feed himself and his wife. The beauty of Kens food garden is that he has a wide variety of different fruit and vegetables for the entire year.

The benefit of having your own vegetables and fruit trees in your garden are simple:
You know where your food comes from and you don’t spend money on oil to get the food from wherever into your kitchen.
