Kerrie will be talking about Wicking Garden Beds, which are self-contained, raised garden beds that have a built-in water reservoir at the bottom. They are like a giant self-watering pot, making them incredibly water efficient and low maintenance and are therefore especially useful for people who are time poor. They can also an inexpensive gardening option as they can be made from recycled materials. Come and learn why wicking beds are becoming an increasingly popular way to garden sustainably!
