The health of your garden, your produce and yourself all come down to one very essential ingredient: soil. Building soil that is full of nutrients, moisture, life and fertility is key to growing healthy nutritious plants.
This workshop will guide you through the basics of healthy soil, from pH to microbes and fungi. You will learn simple techniques to create and maintain a healthy compost system and worm farm system at home, and how to choose the best option for your available space and time, how to recognise and build good soil and the link it creates in your garden and health.
Suitable for: All ages. Beginner to intermediate gardeners.
Provided: Tea, coffee, detailed notes and a planted seedling to take home and kickstart your garden.
Bring: Paper, pen, hat + gloves.
