Friday 2 workshops talking about ... Edible School Gardens;
Workshop 1 How to design and set up an edible school garden
You want to start a veggie garden at school but what next. Leonie will take you through the steps of creating a garden that will be an asset to your school, a garden where students have ownership and pride. We will discuss design, set up day, sustainable systems and the big picture of a successful edible school garden and community.
Workshop 2 You have set up your Edible School Garden, where to from here.
We will look at the What, Where and How of planting. We'll talk Herbs for health, lolly gardens and fun ways to get kids eating and cooking. How to sustain your garden system - compost, pets as worms and crops over the holidays. Our favourite community day is our harvest festival day, every school needs one and I will share different ways to run these successful days.
SATURDAY: HEALTHY SOIL, HEALTHY FOOD = HEALTHY YOU.
The most important aspect of growing vibrant organic food is getting your soil right. Its all about compost, worm castings, green manure crops, minerals, microbes and foliar feeds. Nothing is more important than growing your own food, being healthy and taking control of your food supply.
