Bio intensive poly culture: The regenerative farming approach to growing more while more using less (APRIL ON FARM WORKSHOP)
SUNDAY: Repeat Workshop - 14th April
TIME: 9.30am - 1.15pm (morning tea provided)
This is an on-farm workshop focusing on a cool and cold climate adapted regenerative market gardening approach which allows growers to produce more vegetables using less space while conserving resources such as water, and building healthy soils. Poly culture, as specifically adapted and developed by Bronwyn Richards of Wynlen House Urban Micro Farm, makes use of the many distinct characteristics of vegetable species and their adaptability to cool and cold climate zones, to grow a wide variety of species in the one plot.
Home or small commercial market gardeners who want to produce more with less, who want develop a unique range of vegetables for Market or their families and who want to achieve environmental sustainability by building soil health and conserving resources will be excited by the techniques delivered in the workshop. Everything learned is scaleable to small commercial market gardener and to the backyard grower.
All successful attendees will be eligible to join the Wynlen House Learn/Work Exchange program. This is program of 3 -4 hours volunteer work weekly in the market garden as an active learning opportunity. Find out more at the workshop.
