Kay’s Garden Management Series


What do you think it takes to produce enough veggies, seeds, and grains to feed two adults and two children for a full year on an omnivorous diet?

Well, you can see exactly what it takes by following along for a year in Kay’s 200sqm garden. 

While our other workshops break down the fundamentals of designing regenerative gardens, this one dives into the entirely different skill of managing one throughout the seasons.

We followed Kay for 12 months, asking for her thoughts on each season’s priorities and challenges. The result is a video series that teaches:

  • Building the confidence to focus on your garden’s soil health, which creates ecological balance and solves pest and disease issues
  • How to read your garden and understand the needs of its ecosystem
  • How to maintain your garden in the most time and cost-efficient manner (whilst creating regenerative processes in your ecosystem)
  • What it takes to grow highly nutritious food
  • What grows at each time of the year
  • Which foods can be stored or processed
  • Techniques for managing specific vegetable and perennial species
  • How to maintain nutrient levels with (via compost heaps and other techniques)
  • How to pick the vegetable cultivars that best suit your specific garden conditions
  • How to build simple and effective garden structures
  • Kay’s favourite seasonal recipes!
