2. Wicking Bed Workshop
Presented by The Hub Plot at BRESS Winery.
Wicking beds are a great technique to use when water is scarce, it helps keep water in the root zone, right where it is needed.

The day will commence at 10.00am with a demonstration of this low water method of gardening and morning tea,
followed by hands- on demonstration and making of wicking beds. This time we’ll be using IBC containers and also fruit boxes to make the wicking beds. We will plant them up, and do a short session on spring planting/seed sowing for spring
/summer.
