Organic Gardening Immersion

Would you love to grow most of your own fruit and vegies organically? Without harmful chemicals?

By growing your own organically, you have the chance to enjoy food that's better for you and better for the environment.

Eat food that's fresh the same day from your garden

Feel better about your food

Save heaps of money and enjoy the thrill of picking your own home grown produce at the same time.

This 2 day course is a full immersion experience into growing organically. At the end of the course you will know how to treat your soil, what to grow when, how to grow from seed, how to set up a vegie patch, how to deal with pests organically, how and when to fertilise and what to use. 

You'll be inspired, organised, and confident. This course is good for first timers and for those who already have a garden but who want to know more about  growing organically and succeeding with less effort.

What others have said about this course:

"Dear Linda, Many thanks for such an enjoyable and knowledge filled weekend. The course notes are a great resource to reference for future assistance and my many notes scribbled on the edges of the pages have come in handy already. The seed catalogues are very helpful also. Congratulations on such great food for morning tea and lunch on both days.  It was most enjoyable. Your last session with diagnosis of diseases and bug problems really topped off the whole weekend with so much information and problem solving.

Many thanks again for such an enjoyable learning experience.  I do not think you have to change anything for future courses as your course is so diverse and covers so much.  Hope I am able to participate in another course with you at some stage.Carol and Ray."

"Hello Linda, Thank you so much, I had an awesome time at your immersion weekend. It was a case of information overload, but for me that's always good thing.

The food you and Damien served us was great, Hats off to the both of you. The information pacing was excellent and the quality of information and the follow up leads you passed on were great. It was time and money well spent and I wouldn't mind doing it again with my partner Sally. It was a very inspiring two days.

Thank you very much, you will see me again at another one of your weekends somewhere down the line. Matt D."
