Self-watering Garden Beds Workshop

An exciting workshop on building and managing a wicking bed - a self-watering garden.
Presented by Peter Rutherford

  • Exciting idea for city food gardening
  • What is a wicking bed?
  • Gardens with a water tank at the base
  • Designed so the water ‘wicks upwards’ into the soil, like a candle wick
  • These gardens are self-watering - great when you are not home
  • Commercial wicking beds are available on the market, however at this workshop you will learn how to make your own
     

Come to Kimbriki to learn the secrets of wicking bed design and management.

See examples of different types of wicking beds in the Eco Garden.

See how to build a small wicking bed on the day, including planting it up with some vegies.

This is one of the most exciting and useful gardening workshops we have ever put on at Kimbriki Eco House & Garden!

It is almost a ‘revolution’ in how we can more successfully grow some of our own healthy organic food!
