This is a three day course, running Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Participants will have a genuine, classroom and ‘in the field’ understanding of the science of beneficial soil biology and how biological management will reduce input costs while maintaining or increasing production of food production systems. An important element of this workshop is that the participants will have a hands-on understanding of how to grow, manage and apply beneficial soil microbes as high value compost and compost tea on the farm.
This is a system that is not just sustainable but a system that gives you a genuine understanding of soil management where year by year you increase your topsoil and improve production.
This workshop is focused on presenting an introduction to the complex science of soil microbes and the principles of soil biology in an easy to understand form so that attendees can embrace the benefits, prepare for climate change, and achieve sustainability and profitability while enjoying working on the land.
At the end of this workshop, you will have the tools and understanding about how to make high value compost, compost tea as a ‘vital soil inoculum’ and understand the basics of making valuable bio-fertilizer, where the gardener/farmer/producer can now realistically be more self reliant and ‘go to the shed, not to the shop’.
