Seedsaver Autumn Gathering

  • The Bears Garden 1096 Egmont Road Egmont Village, Taranaki, 4372 New Zealand (map)

In The Bears words.....

"We started out 7 years ago as a 3 acre bare paddock with a small plantation of pine, a house and lots of mud. Wanting to become more self sufficient and sustainable we designed our property along the permaculture guidelines we learned on the Organic Horticulture Course. We are continuously working on developing our property into the permaculture zones as time and money allow. Our soil is very heavy clay close to the house so we are developing raised food producing beds. We have planted out 2 orchards on either side of our house as well as shelter belts. We share our home with 9 sheep, 2 pigs, chooks, ducks, turkeys. bees, rabbits and 5 cats."

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who is starting with a bare piece of land, to learn from Martin and Ann in regards to starting a productive garden from scratch

Please bring along any seed to clean as our big seed cleaning sieves will be there.

The seed bank will be there for seed swapping, please bring a plate for afternoon tea and a koha for Seedsavers Taranaki is always appreciated. Also, bring along any ideas and experiences that you may like to see used and shared by Seedsavers Taranaki

The gathering will take place come rain or shine!
