Lunchtime learning

Looking for something interesting to do on your lunch break?

Why not head down to The Urban Pear’s free, monthly “lunchbox” sessions at Library at the Dock?

Each month until the end of the year landscape architects and permaculture designers Kate Pospisil and Wendy Skala from The Urban Pear will be covering a different topic in a 45-minute lunchtime session.

Wendy and Kate formed The Urban Pear in 2013 and say it connects landscape design, education and a resilient lifestyle.

The pair say they are passionate about the connections between the landscape and the way we eat and live.

This month’s lunchbox session will focus on planting, sourcing and growing indigenous plants and next month you can learn about kale – the DIY super food.

Before the end of the year the pair will cover indoor gardening, seedlings, fermenting and infusing at home and DIY Christmas gifts and treats.

According to Kate and Wendy, the monthly talks will be conversational.

“We have a set topic and then we find out why people have come along and what they want to know about that topic.”

“Then we structure our talk and the conversation around that,” the pair said.

“We always have a handout of the topic being discussed and this might include recipes or ‘how-to’ guides depending on the topic.”

The sessions will be held from 12.30pm to 1.15pm at the Library at the Dock on the first Tuesday of each month (apart from November, when the session will be held on the second Tuesday due to Melbourne Cup weekend).
