Visit a large fruit and vegetable growing garden. The soil here, although originally poor silty clay, is now a carbon enriched loam due to the addition of manures, minerals, compost and brown coal. Stuart has been composting coffee grounds on a large scale. Stuart follows many organic gardening ideas including avoiding pesticides, encouraging predators, working with the landscape, and on-site recycling. Soil improvement and practical aspects of low cost, low maintenance gardening will be discussed.
Because of current Covid-19 restrictions, visitors to this event will be limited to 15 adults and 0 children.
