14th October – Composting & Mulching Your Way to Good Health with Dave Clark (9.30 am)
Oct 14, 2017 @ 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM$5
There have been huge discoveries in soil science in recent years, and we now know that we have to look increasingly to Regenerative techniques to bring most of our soils back to life, and for our crops to carry the nutrition they once did. Focus on the microbiology of soils has also led to the potential to reduce our use of fertilisers while still improving the soil. The way we grow the things we eat, and the medium we grow them in, has an enormous impact on the nutrient density of the produce. This impacts directly on our health & wellbeing. Increases in our understanding have also affected inputs into traditional compost making, and new knowledge allows us to make compost that is even more valuable in our agricultural and gardening efforts. Dave will share with you many ways to increase the fertility of our soil and improve our health while reducing the amount spent at the produce store. Dave is a highly experienced Permaculturist & Permaculture teacher.
Dave has generously donated this workshop to Yandina Community Gardens.
