Community garden to be part of edible garden trail
Woy Woy Community Garden will be part of an Edible Garden Trail run by Permaculture Central Coast on the weekend of November 19 and 20.
The Trail will include around 25 private gardens and a variety of community, laneway and school gardens, said coordinator Ms Anna Trigg.
The ticketed event will provide admission to the gardens over the weekend, from 9am to 4pm each day.
Some gardens will only be open for one day.
Ms Trigg said: "The Edible Garden Trail celebrates the many ways gardeners on the Central Coast are creating food security, building personal and community resilience, regenerating soils and converting waste into precious resources."
She said they were doing this while enjoying the health benefits of home grown produce and taking meaningful action towards reducing food miles and plastics use.
"On the edible garden trail, visitors can view a range of permaculture systems and practices."
These included food forests, indigenous foods and cultural practices, as well as small animal systems including deep litter, chook tractors and integrated food forests.
Water management systems included swales, rain gardens and ponds, and practices included no-dig raised beds and sheet mulching.
Tickets cost up to $56 for a family ticket.
