Soil Building Workshop

Saturday 14 November

Soil Building Workshop

A soil building workshop will be held at the Nalawala sustainability hub at Fairfield Showground from 9am to noon.

The workshop, which is part of National Recycling Week, will teach participants skills and techniques so that by the end of the courses they are self-sufficient.

Each class will be encouraged to form peer-support groups to enhance implementation back home and provide ongoing support. The teacher of the course will assist peer support groups to get up and running and help them achieve self-reliance.

The Soil Building workshop will cover topics such as composting (hot, cold, in ground), Worm Farms (stack, bathtubs, towers), Plants (green manures, crop rotation), Inoculants (compost tea, bio-fertilisers) and Manures (chicken, cow, pig, goat, sheep, horse).
