An Introduction to Wicking Beds @ Trillion Trees | Hazelmere | Western Australia | Australia

This series will consist of four workshops that each focus on different aspects of gardening using a wicking bed, including construction (with a live demonstration), soils and nutrient cycles, what to grow, and managing pests and nutrient deficiencies.

Workshop One – In this introductory workshop, the presenter will demonstrate how to build a wicking bed using recycled materials. Participants will then be able to construct a wicking bed at home.

Workshop Two – The second workshop in the series will focus on soils and nutrient cycles. Participants will come away with an understanding of the benefits of growing vegetables in a contained bed, what soils are appropriate to use, and the importance of nutrients.

Workshop Three – The focus of this workshop will be the importance of choosing the best veggies and herbs to maximise your productivity and harvest.

Workshop Four – The final workshop in the series will focus on how to diagnose and treat nutrient deficiencies and manage pests using non-toxic methods, including companion planting and encouraging beneficial insects.
