Wicking beds are a great way to conserve water while producing great crops. And they don’t have to cost a fortune either. Join Canberra’s own ‘Wicking Witch of the West’ – Cally Brennan from Canberra Permaculture Design – to learn how easy it is to make your own wicking garden bed or plant pot. She has spent the last 9 years making all sorts of wicking beds, from the very large to the very small – learn tips on how you can make your garden thrive and survive, even in the very hottest weather.
