This workshop is jam-packed! Everything you need to grow an abundant veggie patch.

You’ll learn:
- Soil Health: What good soil looks like, my easy peasy compost recipe, making and using liquid feed; how to grow and use green crops; simple ways to recycle food scraps; aerating your soils (and why it is so important); how to turn over and prepare garden beds
- Crop Rotation: Rotating your crops prevents pest and disease and keeps your soils balanced. It’s important no matter how small your plot is, and not as hard as you think.
- Design: Good harvests begin with good design. Choose the best site for your veggie patch; cunning ways to manage weeds; integrated pest management (natures way); shelter and the best beginning for your veggie beds

This workshop is a mix of hands on and theory, so wear your gardening gear and bring your gloves.
