These days you can wear it, walk on it, sleep under it and even drink it!
Perhaps the world’s most versatile grass, Bamboo also presents itself as a great option for incorporating into your property or garden. Not simply valued for the end product, its cultivation can also provide you with privacy, shelter and help regenerate your soil.
Join us for an evening of debunking myths and demystifiying your concerns about growing Bamboo and learn about varieties suited to a Tassie climate and their benefits.
We will be discussing:
- Non-invasive, cold climate clumping bamboo varieties
- Applications in landscape and Permaculture design and
- The use of Bamboo as:
a fast growing windbreak
a building material
shade and forage for livestock
soil regeneration and erosion control
a source of biofuel, and
food for us.
This workshop will be presented by Geoff Pyne from Bamboo Van Diemen, Tassie’s only dedicated bamboo nursery.
We will provide you with snacks and hot drinks whilst you lap up the info.
There’s always an opportunity to learn something new, so why not joins us to chat Bamboo?
This workshop is an initiative of the Huon Producers’ Network and Permaculture Tasmania, with a discount entry fee for members.
