Yams to go at seed workshop

Sun, 20/09/2009 – Michel Fanton

 In Wollongong this Saturday Sat 19th held in beautifully diverse gardens.
The community gardens are called ‘The Garden’ and are a truly inspirational Permaculture display with hundreds of fruit trees and other perennials and a complex and superbly maintained vegetable garden.
The five hour course, free to locals, is full but I reckon more can squeeze in.
Many people are bringing their seeds and so have we.
There will be Yams (Dioscorea alata) to share for replanting. And more rareties.
