Balcony Gardens and Newspaper Pots

A huge thank you to Chrys and Chris from The Addington Timebank. Both keen local gardeners who came over this afternoon to run a workshop on gardening. Chrys started off by showing everyone how to make an easy biodegradable pot for seedlings out of newspaper. These pots rot away when planted, minimizing waste and the trauma to the seedling as it is transferred.
Afterwards, Chris shows us his locally famous balcony gardening method. Using nothing but a bag of potting mix and seeds he was able to produce a productive vegetable garden on a small concrete balcony.

There was a great turnout and we all enjoyed Kathy Viney’s amazing baking afterwards!
