From seed to splendour

Tuesday, October 31, 2023

Join us in the enchanting Heronswood Gardens on the Mornington Peninsula, for a fun hands-on gardening workshop for children, led by the Kitchen Garden Foundation’s very own Natasha Grogan!  

Little gardeners will learn how to:  

  • make newspaper pots for planting spring seeds 
  • craft mini greenhouses 
  • propagate softwood herbs, like rosemary 

Australia’s first certified organic open garden and the home of the Foundation’s Seed Partner, The Diggers Club, Heronswood is truly magical. The meandering paths and lawns, and seamless combination of edible and ornamental plantings, make for an exquisite setting for our workshop – and a lovely family outing! We can’t wait to see you there.
