I know I'm always going on about freshly picked produce and farmer's markets but what if you could become your own little farmer? Toni from The Veggie Lady who was at the Organic Expo and Green Show this year holds regular classes on how to transform your garden into a bountiful paradise! Firstly, you take a trip to Camden and see Tonis own garden where you will take the principals from Tonis garden and learn how to transform your own backyard into a food forest, whether its a tiny balcony or a 5 acre property!
You also learn how to divide your garden into zones for entertaining, flowers and vegetable growing, fruit and perennial orchard, and even backyard poultry. Topics covered include placement and layout, plant grouping, garden structures and chicken-keeping. Start the day with home-baked morning tea and enjoy lunch from Tonis own garden as well as other tasty local gourmet produce. Organic seeds and other garden needs are also for sale.
Thanks to Toni The Veggie Lady I am giving away a gift certificate worth $174 which you can use for you and one of your friends to come to one of their organic veggie garden workshops*. *All you have to do is tell me the vegetable, fruit or flower that you'd like to grow the most and why! Simply add your answer as a comment to the story. The competition ends at Midnight AEST 17th of October, 2010. You can enter this once daily. This competition is open to people in Australian that can make it to the Camden location (sorry darlings, John Travolta is flying Oprah in my private jet ;) ).
Congratulations to the winner Margaret H.!
Lots of love,
