The workshop includes hands-on activities like learning to propagate herbs via stem cuttings, making a self-wicking system, suspended herb rack and seed bombs, as well as demonstrations of pesticide sprays, making your own compost tub, and sharing of vegetables and herbs suitable for urban environments.
All participants will take home a complimentary mushroom-in-a-cup kit along with their own workshop creations.
Each ticket admits a parent-child pair (recommended for children above 4 years), or a single pax age 8 and above. Children under age 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring two to three 1.5 litre plastic bottles to the workshop.
