All Season Cool Climate Organic Vegtable Growing (ON FARM WORKSHOP)
Date: Sunday 24th Feb, 9.30 - 3.30pm, Braidwood NSW
Australia's cooler and cold climate zones can make growing vegetables all year around a real challenge. In this workshop you will learn the strategies and tactics that make for successful vegetable production in areas where overnight winter temperatures are often below zero, with regular frosts. The workshop covers:
- understanding your climate zone, particularly a cool climate zone
- growing in all seasons
- bed preparation
- when and what to plant
- frost protection
- weeding and weeding tools
- intensive planting and other garden practices
We very briefly explore the various organic approaches: permaculture, bio-dynamic, biological and gain a basic understanding of these different philosophies. The course aims to provide you with the practical knowledge and skills to produce food all year, from a small backyard plot or a large market garden.
The on-farm workshop is offered in Braidwood NSW, and will soon beoffered online throughout Australia. Couples discounts apply. Pay the full amount, notify us of you and your partners names, and we will refund $25 after the workshop.
