What are you interested in?
In this hands-on workshop you can help prep a row so you have an up close look at Permaculture and what a difference it makes to creating healthy, living soil.
You’ll peer through a magnifying glass to understand what living soil really is.
You’ll have an opportunity to make tea and can even buy some to take home.
You’ll finally get an answer to the makeup of the soil in the valley and solutions with rock dust for balance PH.
You’ll see with your own eyes the difference of the nutritional value of what is grown in a Permaculture crop compared to store bought.
You may even get to help build a Hügelkultur bed.
