Expert to hold session at Seymour Community Garden.MARK PADGETT February 19, 2014 4:04am
Brian Bowring has learned the odd thing or two (thousand) over the years about fruit trees, and he will share his knowledge at the Seymour Community Garden on Friday.
Seymour Community Garden is presenting a series of healthy living/food gardening workshops.
When and Who: This Friday at 1
Why: ‘‘Every other bug or animal seems to get the fruit from our trees except my family .
Mr Bowring, through years of experience, has learned the odd thing or two (thousand) on how to look after fruit trees so that they produce abundantly with minimal losses.
This will be a real workshop, where people can practise what they learn on site, but people must bring their own secateurs, wear closed toe shoes and abide by the instructions given for the purpose of maintaining health and safety (no exceptions).
Expected duration: Around two hours, with some teaching/ demonstration given in the first 30 minutes before people are able to prune trees with guidance. Come with any questions about fruit tree establishment and maintenance, and Mr Bowring will endeavour to answer them.
Where: The Seymour Community Garden is in Victoria St on the Salvation Army property where people can learn and practise organic gardening in a caring community environment.
How: The healthy living series of workshops is supported by Mitchell Shire Council, Seymour Health, and the Salvation Army.
