Garden maintenance, coaching, soil analysis and ongoing support
Ongoing garden maintenance is equally as important as the initial design and construction, to ensure your garden or growing space thrives.
After delivering a garden, we recommend at least a few follow-up sessions to work with you in your garden so you have the confidence to get the most out of your new productive space. Yes, those chillies look beautiful on those plants but they make an amazing sauce and they’ll grow better if you harvest them. We’ll show you how.
Of course, you are welcome to email us about anything happening in your garden that you aren’t sure of. We want to help you to get stuck into your garden, as the saying goes – “it’s better than the gym and you get tomatoes!”
Workshops, working bees and education
We currently run the Edible Gardening Programme at Forestville Montessori School where we teach kids from 3 to 12 years old valuable lessons in ecology, plant health and food gardening. Recently we wrote a government grant-winning proposal for the school to expand this program and partner with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation.
At the school we have also helped run their working bees so the right things happen in the gardens and health and safety guidelines are followed.
Ku-ring-gai Council has engaged Urban GreenSpace to write and teach their Apartment and Small Space Gardening Workshops.
