PLEASE NOTE WE ARE TAKING EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR THIS WORKSHOP – BUT HAVE POSTPONED FOR THE TIME BEING.

Farm walk – what is growing where at this time of year?

Nursery skills revisited – summer sowings – take home seedlings

Direct sowing and trellising – care and trellising of tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, foliar feeds, and pest and disease management.

Workshop Format:
You will be working on the farm in beds that you will be able to emulate at home. By the end of the day, you will know how we grow our fruiting crops (tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, etc.), how we train and trellis and what we do about pests and diseases.

We will also visit the nursery to brush up on our skills and sow some seeds for summer.

We will introduce the biodynamic preparations and make our own compost heap.

Bring suitable boots, clothes and gloves. We will provide the tools and material required for the workshop.

Some seasonal seedlings, handouts  – composting information, introduction to biodynamics.
