Roebuck Farm, 310 Hurford Rd, Omata, New Plymouth Show map


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Seed Keeper: $10.00

Join Jodi Roebuck on his thriving farmlet at Omata. As well as maintaining a large bio intensive garden focused on seed production, Jodi manages a flock of sheep using management intensive grazing to improve the land at Roebuck Farm.

He also teaches and consults on Bio Intensive garden development projects in New Zealand, Australia and the US. Having been mentored by Bio Intensive gardening pioneer John Jeavons, Jodi is almost certainly Australasia’s foremost expert on the topic.

Jodi is a humble, quietly spoken person and yet behind his gentle exterior lays a formidable knowledge and skill base that he will share with visitors during the Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular (formerly the rhododendron festival).

This session's topic is ‘Season Extension’ and will include greenhouse production, Bio-Intensive seedling raising and transplanting. Tuesday will cover ‘Garden Management’ with tips on composting, bed preparation and broadcasting crops.
