Here are some more details about the Grow Your Own Health Workshop that I’m holding here on June 15th.
If you’ve ever wanted to grow your own fruit and veggies and don’t know where to start, this is the perfect workshop for you!
- What you need to get an organic garden happening
- Composting & worm farms
- Soil management and the importance of soil pH testing (bring a small sample of soil, from 5cm below surface, for testing)
- Companion planting
- Home made plant fertilisers and soil improver’s
- Plant positioning
No matter whether your garden is large or small or if you have a balcony with pots, you can grow your own food.
You might be thinking why have a garden workshop in winter and not in spring, but the reason I am holding it now, is to show you how to grow the best garden from a soil full of wonderful nutrients which will be ready to plant in late winter, early spring and will be producing later in spring and into early summer.
The workshop will run from 10.00 until 1.00 and will include something delicious to eat as Greg Higgs, chef from Momo’s Cafe at Organic feast in east Maitland, will be there to cook for us!
The cost is $80 which includes the workshop, delicious food and soil pH testing.
