Event Description




Would you like to grow your own fresh veges and save money at the same time?

Are you not sure how to get going? 

Do you want to get more out of the garden you already have?

Then come along to the Master Gardener course – a practical, hands-on course which teaches people to become gardeners – and gardeners to become master gardeners.  This course is accessible for every body.

The course is taught by a stunning line-up of New Zealand’s organic gardening experts and will show you how to create your own successful organic garden and contribute to a more sustainable and eco-friendly urban environment.

The next course starts on Saturday, 1 October and is held weekly 9:30-12:30 until 10 December for 10 weeks at CCS Disability Action at 14 Erson Avenue in Royal Oak.

Cost: $275, or $125 plus a minimum of 15 work exchange hours.


Basic topics covered include getting started and garden design using permaculture principles, soil health and how to maintain it by using various garden techniques, introductory botany, herb cultivation, composting, worm farming, growing fruit trees suited for our region successfully, managing pests and diseases by various organically safe methods, successfully saving seeds, creating food forests, and tools that make it easy.  PLUS a couple of field trips to well-established gardens organised by some of the most knowledgeable people in the field.  PLUS many opportunities to practice the art right here in our own gardens.  PLUS multiple plant starts and seeds to take home.  There’s more?  YES, plus the opportunity to learn all of this in the comraderie of others of similar mind.
