Wouldn't it be great to grow food that virtually looks after itself in our farms and gardens?
It's frustrating when our vegetables get eaten by bugs, our fruit trees struggle, and we have to rely on fertilisers and pest controls to have any chance of getting a decent crop.
Understanding your growing conditions is your roadmap to growing plants that thrive and produce food for you, rather than the bugs! You produce more food in good times, get fewer setbacks when the weather plays up, and grow 'sustainably', less reliant on fertilisers, pest controls, and other inputs.
Many people worry about not having the skills and time to map the different environmental conditions (soil, shade, drainage, etc.) in their farms and gardens. But you don't need to dive in deep, get tied up in knots, or spend days recording stuff! It's unnecessary, and if you're anything like me – you have too many other things to do…
That's why we developed the GrowMap
Getting to know your growing conditions has never been so easy! GrowMaps are fun to do with your children and other members of your team! Specialist skills aren't required.
With a GrowMap you will:
- Grow robust and self-sufficient plants
- Discover new opportunities - for example, areas sheltered from the wind, spots with shade or where the drainage is better
- Get the information you need to design ways to improve your growing conditions
- Be better prepared for the next drought, heatwave or flooding rain...
