Korito urban permaculture garden is open to the public during the Taranaki Garden festival which runs from Friday 29 November to Sunday 7 November 2021.
The garden is set on an acre of land comprising annual beds, mandalas, food forest, mosaics, step-over fruit trees and espaliers, productive subtropicals and a 400 year old bush block.
The property is used as an educational space to teach permaculture, biodynamics and soil biology to a huge range of people across New Zealand, as well as visitors from overseas. Find out how permaculture design techniques can lead to a low maintenance, low cost, productive vegetable and fruit garden while still looking attractive.
There will be a guided walk and talk every day during the festival at 11am every morning with a chance to ask questions about the garden, and the different techniques used to keep it producing abundantly with very little external inputs with regards to materials or labour.
There will be a huge range of permaculture plants for purchase from herbs and groundcovers to nitrogen fixers and trees.
The talks usually attract around 70 people a day so come a bit earlier to get a parking space or better still park at the end of the street and walk up to the property at 28a Trafalgar Street, Westown, New Plymouth.
