Event Description

Over 2 Sunday workshops we'll take a close look at organic gardens and how you can start your own and make it into a thriving oasis to feed you, your family and have more for later too.

Linda's workshops are always popular becuase she brings a lifetime of knowledge and some excellent professional advice and tips.

At these 2 workshops you'll get to know your soil better and work out how to create a biologically active start for your food growing.

We'll go through how to grow tricky plants from seed - things that you just haven't had much success with, you'll learn how to plant and grow fabulously.

There are special suggestions for growing and transplanting seedlings, especially tomatoes, potatoes and garlic!

We'll cover fertilising- the when and how, using home-made fertilisers, bought ones and when to use them for side-dressing foliar feeds, liquid feeds and more. We also cover green manures, and a little on companions for healthy plants.

In just 2 sessions you'll confidently grow fabulous fresh vegies chemical free and full of vitality. Two full mornings to inspire and help you succeed. Give me a call if you'd like to join in. 33492962 or email me

Cost for both: $125 includes booklet of notes, morning teas and the best organic advice in SEQ!

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
