Do you like fresh herbs? Having herbs growing near your kitchen can make your salads and cooking more enjoyable. In this workshop you will make a low maintenance (wicking bed) mini herb garden from repurposed materials.
Bring the container you want to plant in, and an old, raggy natural fibre item (eg t-shirt, tea towel, bath towel or bag made of cotton or linen or jute) to become the wick helping the water move from the bottom of the container and up into the soil. Make sure the fabric is large enough to cover the base and come part way up the sides of your container. 

We will provide the materials to make your own potting mix, and a selection of advanced herb seedlings. Your ticket purchase covers up to 10 advanced seedlings. Additional seedlings may be available for cash purchase on the day.
Wear a hat and weather-appropriate clothing such as long sleeves (or sunscreen) and closed-in shoes. 
*Your container needs to be able to be punctured part way up to allow overflow of excess water. Something with water holding capacity at the bottom would be perfect for the job. We suggest reusing an old washing basket (lined at the bottom with a plastic bag) or re-use a foam box (fruit and veg shops get broccoli in them, and might let you have them free or for low cost)
