Sunday 18th December: Banana circle workshop

Come and join us for our last workshop of the year and learn how to easily grow bananas in your own backyard.

Using permaculture principles, we will be building a banana circle in the Combine Street Community Garden and plant bananas trees as well as some good companion plants.

 

A banana circle is one of the easiest-to-build and most rewarding element of a permaculture garden.

Within weeks, it provides:

  • a beautiful shaded area to sit under,
  • great screening and windbreak,
  • a potential place to catch rain or grey water,
  • a place to dipose of green waste (in the centre of the circle… the hungry banana trees will literally eat it all up!),
  • and of course, lots of FREE bananas year round!
