FREE ‘Grow Your Own’ workshop this weekend

October4

Matt Allison, Urban Farmer

In conjunction with the Earth Fair Food Market in Tokai (in the same complex as Builders Warehouse) I’ll be presenting a FREE ‘Grow Your Own’ workshop, this Saturday, 8th October at 10am.

This is what they had to say:

Matt is a well respected urban farmer, eco advocate and blogger and he will be doing a hands on workshop showing us how to grow our own veggies organically. For more info on Matt, check out his blog http://www.imnojamieoliver.com

Many people are seeking more eco friendly ways of living and also (at the risk of sounding…airy fairy) to feel their connection to the earth. On a recent trip to Crete to visit my mother, I discovered that in many parts of Europe growing your own veggies is very much a part of day to day life. The pride in watching your butternut squash grow to maturity or your tomatoes run rampant is something that cannot be underestimated.

There seems to be a very encouraging explosion of intrerest in urban farming and grow your own in Cape Town and around the world. Matt will give practical tips on how to start and establish your own edible garden and will be able to answer any questions that you may have after the workshop. The workshop will be held at Earth Fair Tokai at 10am – under the stretch tent at the front entrance. All are welcome. See you there!
