Wouldn't it be great to reduce our reliance on fertilisers, compost and other biological inputs?
While most soils don't show the customary signs of soil degradation, they don't provide the free ecological services functioning soil ecosystems supply. Getting our soil ecosystems working again soil organisms maintain the soil infrastructure, recycle plant nutrients and make them available to our crops for reuse.
At this one-day workshop for farmers and gardeners - 'Feed Plants without Fertilisers', participants learn how to build healthy soil by getting their soil ecosystems functioning again. They apply ecological principles to develop practical techniques suitable for their growing conditions and what they grow.
…Farmers and food gardeners interested in exploring eco-logical ways growing. Their climate, the type of food grown, or property size doesn't matter – the principles are the same. Back yard growers, community and market gardeners, hobby farmers and large scale commercial growers benefit from using this ecological approach.
We partner with community groups, regional and international development organisations to deliver these workshops in their region or online, combined with live stream video demonstrations from the field at Hill Top Farm - our education centre and demonstration site.
Partners generally have extensive networks and media contacts for promotions, organising registration, the venue and catering. Our role is to work with you to fine-tune the content to meet the needs of your participants.
