Square foot gardening with Ken Clark from Waiheke:
This is a unique chance to learn from one of New Zealand’s most successful square foot gardeners, Ken Clark. We are very happy that Ken is coming to Auckland for a workshop to share his knowledge. Square foot gardening is a perfect solution for city gardens. It produces 70% more food than conventional gardens with less work.

What to expect:
The workshops cover everything from seeds to eating and building a square foot garden. Kit sets will be available on the day for purchase.
A flyer will be given out outlining the workshop.

About Ken Clark and Square foot gardening:
Ken first learnt about square foot gardening about 20 years ago. He proceeded to do it his own way for 17 years, 3 years ago he retired to Waiheke Island & started SFG in earnest. Ken lives on a small size section and produces an abundance of fruit and veges using the Square foot gardening method. SFG advocates growing only what you need on a weekly basis. It is a fantastic system for busy people who wish to have a more sustainable life and great home grown food with the minimum fuss and effort.

Dear Fiona,

we want to make sure everyone can hear and see what Ken is teaching, this is why we have a limited number for each workshops. We send out the location for each workshops after you have registered. You can register by sending an email to: judith@mountedenvillagepeople.co.nz

The location of the workshops might change from time to time. This weekend we had the SFG workshop workshop in MT Eden and the pruning workshop in Sandringham.

There will be another SFG workshop in October, hope you can make it to the next one:

Best wishes

Judith Holtebrinck

Yep Hi.  Went to your workshop today only couldn't find hide nor hair of you, not at Mt Eden Village centre or the community gardens.  So where were you.  Sadly at home and none the wiser.
