We run short talks, and hands-on wicking bed building workshops – taking participants through the ins and outs of setting up their wicking bed right.

When we’re building wicking beds for councils, community gardens, schools or other community spaces, there’s nothing we like more than doing so with the community involved, sharing the knowledge along the way. It’s a win-win: for not much more cost than the bed install itself, we can share the whys, why-nots and how-to’s.

We are experienced educators, and have developed teaching styles and strategies to help fast-track people on to the road of good health and sustainability through our fun workshops which mix theory with get-your-hands-dirty practice delivered with good humour and genuine passion. Appropriate for all ages, these workshops are beginner friendly and always a lot of fun.

Besides wicking bed workshops, Very Edible Gardens offer a range of garden and permaculture related workshops over at the main VEG site.
