IMPROVE YOUR PROFITABILITY

Two-day course

Growing healthy food doesn’t need to be such hard work.

Organic techniques are good  for growing chemical-free food, but growing gets easier when we bring Nature’s free ecological services back into our farms again.

We’ll help you …

Save money, have less work, and grow more by restoring the key ecological functions in your production systems using our toolkit of Ecological Practices.

GROW HEALTHY FOOD MORE EASILY

Two-day course

Growing healthy food doesn’t need to be such hard work.

I’d like to help you grow food that actually saves you money, and gives you time to sit back and enjoy our garden. Organic growing is great for growing healthy food, but there are still all the endless chores and expensive garden products.

The solution – letting nature give us a helping hand by bringing her FREE ecological services back into our gardens again.

Convert your garden from a place needing constant work, into an easy to maintain food garden with our proven ‘Eco-Logical Retrofit’.

  • Grow food that looks after itself
  • Reduce fertilizer and pesticide costs by improving your nutrient recycling and developing natural pest resistant landscapes
  • Grow living mulch instead of mulching

With your eco-logical retrofit you’ll create a food garden you love spending time in … No stress growing – just pour yourself another veggie smoothie or gin and tonic!
