January 15th sees the official opening of School of Food for the Thomastown Town of Food initiative. The Open Days take place on January 17th and 18th which are open to one and all, and there will be also be a Susliving Gardening & Horticulture workshop running on the 17th.
Over the past months, Susliving has been delivering workshops as part of the Thomastown Town of Food Gardening & Horticulture course. These workshops have focused on building up the Food Garden from scratch, from hard landscaping and infrastructure building, to future plant planning using suitable catalogues of domestic and alternative crops and plants. The workshops began in the Garden Design & Planning phase, where surveys and assessments were carried out on the Food Garden. After the initial design and planning workshops, we progressed onto lands caping and construction of compost bins, raised beds and the poly tunnel. In tandem with the construction of the garden structures and poly tunnel, suitable fruit and crops were selected for future planting in the garden.
The Thomastown Town of Food Garden is a fantastic community project and here at Susliving we are delighted to be a part of it! This project is a developing success and aims to provide a source of fruit and vegetables for the School of Food.
