Fencing for Gardeners

Materials, heights, depths, longevity and installation tools are all issues we must face if we are to keep the critters away from our produce. This workshop will help you choose which are the best for your situation. We will look at a number of options including metal and wooden posts, metal and nylon fencing and various equipment which might be needed. We will pay particular attention to building strong corners and gates and will practice building small prototypes in class. Samples of a number of types of posts and fences will be available for examination and we will also cover several caging methods for small fruit and berries.
