Sunday 31 July 9-4 

Crop rotation, companions, how to build soil life biota & natural fertility

If we are what we eat, then your home grown plants need the best start in life!

While many gardeners have poor soil, lacking in fertility with plants that have a lack lustre performance, it needn't be like this. 

 I  read on facebook recently, a post a about how a woman had started growing organically but her garden was over-run by insects and things just failed miserably.  Many folks responded to her calls for advice. Some ideas were good, others were just never going to help her.

So, I'm suggesting that if you really want success, learn from an expert. This full day course will help you to really get on top of the things that annoy you most about your garden.

Pests, disease, not knowing what to grow to help the soil and disease control, and those other questions every organic gardener needs to know - the correct information for  about crop rotation, soils and healthy plants.

You know you want to :) 

Book your spot and get ahead. Call Linda 32063676 or email to book 

 Price: $120 includes lunch, snack and notes and a darned good day in the garden learning the things you need to know.

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.
