Avocado Grafting Workshop

Saturday 21 November 2020
12.00 – 2.30pm
Raglan Community House

Come learn how to grow and graft avocado trees!
Everyone loves avocados: an amazing food, full of good fats, these trees grow well locally and can produce prolifically.
Avocado seedlings are one of the easiest seeds to germinate – Unfortunately these seedlings can take up to 15 years to fruit, and the resulting avocados are likely to be of poor quality – not the same as the original fruit that the seed came from.
The seedlings can be raised, however, until the stem is around pencil thickness, then grafted between October and February with a selected variety, such as ‘Hass’ or ‘Reed’ which then produces a good fruiting tree in four or so years if cared for well.

There are limited Spaces: max participates is x20. RSVP is a must. NO casual attendance.
Please RSVP by emailing backyardbounty@whaingaroa.org.nz OR text 0277809075

Biochar Workshop #2

Saturday 28 November 2020
11.00 – 12.30pm
120 Maungatawhiri Rd, Raglan

Join us at this demonstration workshop to learn how to make biochar and why it is so awesome for our gardens and our environment!
Biochar is a natural soil improver that benefits plants growth by holding moisture & nutrients. This specially made charcoal can increase soil fertility of acidic soils, increase agricultural productivity, provide protection against some plant diseases and may provide long-term sequestration of carbon.

RSVP’s a must, limited spaces available. 

More information can be found on the facebook event or by emailing backyardbounty@whaingaroa.org.nz

Come along and meet Timebank members over a cuppa. This is a public event, all welcome.

The face-to-face opportunity makes such a big difference! It’s so much easier to make connections and even get the help you need. People usually find out about things they would like to do or learn, and they even realise things they can offer!
