WAITATI EDIBLE GARDENING

MAKING PRODUCTIVE USE OF A SMALL BLOCK: AN INTRODUCTION TO SMALL-SCALE
GROWING FOR PLEASURE AND PROFIT

Afternoon workshop, Sunday 24 August, 1-4pm. Cost $20.

Hosts/tutors: Sue and Andy Barrett.

What will be covered:

* Making decisions: understanding your block, choosing the
right things to grow

* How much to invest

* Gaining skills/expertise

* Managing your block

* Sales and marketing

Including a "walkabout"/question-and-answer session. We will try to
respond to what individual participants bring to the workshop in terms of
their own plans, ideas and experiences.

About us: we bought 17 hectares of bare land in 1993. Since then, we have
been developing it as a mixed small-holding. We began conversion to
organics in 2003 and are now fully certified organic under the Organic
Farm New Zealand certification scheme.

Bookings essential, limited places, please phone Geraldine 4822 517
