Farm walk – what is growing where at this time of year?
Nursery skills revisited – sowing for winter, the importance of timings
Season extension – low cost ways to create covered cropping areas to increase production through cooler months

Direct sowing – preparing ground, tricks and tips for better germination, sowing carrots, radish, rocket and beets.
You will be working on the farm in beds that you will be able to emulate at home. We will visit the nursery and understand the importance of timings, and being ahead of the coming cooler months and brush up on our nursery skills.
Ever had troubles getting your carrots to germinate? By the end of the day, we will have gone through all the steps from ground prep to sowing and you will know how to successfully grow carrots, rocket, radish and beets from direct seed sowing, what varieties work for our climate and when to sow.
Bring suitable boots, clothes and gloves. We will provide the tools and material required for the workshop.
