Food & Soil Workshops at Gold Coast Permaculture

Food and soil workshops at Gold Coast Permaculture today introduced many participants to ways of obtaining the best organic food from their soil.

Sarah began the day with an introduction to permaculture concepts.

Dan followed up with the mixes for growing seeds, cuttings and potting up.

  Everyone enjoyed discovering the wide range of organic seedlings available.



Next an introduction to soil biology with Greg from Wormtec.


Followed by Charles introducing us to no-dig gardens and how to make our own lime sulphur.

Lots of great information, great concepts and the beginning for many of new ways of thinking about food production.

Thanks for your appreciation! I feel very strongly about the plight of our native bees and hope that this blog will help people identify them and want to help save them by growing nectar-rich plants in their gardens.
