Edible Oasis offers the accumulated experience of 15 years in permaculture and organic growing and retailing through a range of workshops, ran at workerBe oasis in Newtown. Through a balanced combination of theory and hands-on experience, participants quickly learn how to grow their own food efficiently on a small suburban section.

The workshops are 90 minutes long and cost $20 with half price for workerBe oasis members and two spots available for Timebank credits. Subjects range from how to prepare a garden for maximum success and nutrition to how to store your produce to preserve nutritional value and taste.

Edible Oasis also trains up workerBe oasis’ Farm Managers for new urban farm sites. If you are interested in a trainee position, please email

The workshops resume end of July. Our July-September program is now full. We’ll be looking to start another series in the Spring. Let us know if you are interested and we’ll put you on the list.
