Starting an Organic Garden #2

Would you love a successful and productive organic garden brimming with crispy vegies, succulent tomatoes and your own potatoes, carrots and more?

Learn from the ground up, how to succeed.

This is week 2 of a series where you’ll learn to grow your own amazing garden. We cover how to prepare a garden bed, what to use and what to avoid,  fertilisers and what to plant now for a spring and summer food fantasia. We’ll be sowing seeds and root vegies today too, so take home some of your own.  We also cover caring for your new seed bed, and the tricky things behind seed raising. I aim to have you growing fabulously from seed at a fraction of the price of seedlings.

$75 includes extensive notes and hands-on practice. You’ll go home and be eager to start immediately.

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.
