No-Dig Garden Royong @ Dignity



Learn how to build a garden without a cangkul!

Join us for a hands-on workshop to build a perennial kitchen garden in one day together with kids from the Dignity community, where everyone will learn about how to grow their own food at the same time.

SESSION A: 7:30am – 11:30am
BUILDING A NO-DIG GARDEN
facilitated by Eats, Shoots & Roots

Part 1. Building Raised Beds
———-
Learn about soil fertility while at the same time build raised no-dig gardens using waste from their kitchens and their neighbourhoods.

Part 2. Planting and Propagating Edibles
———-
Learn how to plant and propagate via seed, seedling and cuttings during this planting session where they will fill out the beds they have built. They will also learn how to choose plants that grow easily in their garden.

Part 3. Composting
———-
In addition to building and planting, composting is an essential part of being able to sustain the garden. There will be a basic introduction of how to compost using the compost bins provided.

SESSION B: 3pm – 7pm
BUILDING A COW-PROOF STONE WALL
