Square foot gardening with Ken Clark from Waiheke
This is a unique chance to learn all you need to know to start and maximise food production in the city from one of New Zealand’s most successful square foot gardeners. Square foot gardening is a perfect solution for city gardens as it produces 70% more food than conventional gardens with less work. Ken will also share practical tips to improve your organic gardening skills and talk about soil maintenance, home-made organic fertiliser and seed saving.

What to expect:

  • The workshops cover everything from seeds and organic gardening.
  • You will get the chance to design your own Square foot garden on a map that you can take home.
  • A flyer with gardening and soil information will be handed out outlining the workshop.
  • After this workshop you can set up your own SFG garden and start your food production.
  • To set up your own Square foot garden takes one hour.

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. 5 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 organically grow food with the minimum fuss and effort.

Dear Shirley,

I am sorry to hear you arrived today and did not get the information that this workshop is next weekend. This workshop had to be postponed to next weekend as Ken was unable to make it.

We ask people to rsvp to our email address (the first line of the notification text above) so we can be in touch and send out the directions or any changes for the workshop. This also helps us to make sure we have a manageable size and the groups are not too full.

I just checked our confirmation list but I don't seem to have received a confirmation email from you, this is why we could not send you the information with the change of dates.

We also updated the change of dates on our website and on our facebook page:
FB: Mounteden villagepeople

This workshop is now next weekend, 28.10.2012, if you wish to attend, we have 3 more spaces let, please send an email to: judith@mountedenvilagepeople.co.nz

Again I am sorry for your inconvenience.

Best wishes

Judith Holtebrinck

My husband and I turned up for this work shop and 2 others were their as well,   We are not very happy about this as we were not notified and there is nothing here saying it is canceled as I checked before we left.  We came from the north shore I was very unhappy about this as a sent e mail or even if you had put it here that it was cancelled . Infact I put some thing else off so I could attend this.  Hmmmmmmmmm
