Workshop

You can Grow Healthy Plants on Almost Any Soil, with Biological Gardening Techniques

Leanne Harper

9.30 am

In this workshop, Leanne will discuss the four actions of a biological gardener:

- Work with nature

- Feed the soil life organic matter 

- Minimise tilling and compaction

- Balance the soil minerals

The focus of this session will be on soil mineral balancing in the home garden and, if time permits, Leanne will take attendees out into the Gardens to demonstrate how to put this new-found information into practice.
