After the great success of the first Ooooobervirsity class it is time again for you to get your hands dirty.
Ooooby is an online farmers market and not your standard business. Ooooby stands for ‘Out of our own backyards’ and their mission is to rebuild local food economies and make local food convenient, affordable and fair everywhere.
Why? Because they believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
By running a lean operation, Ooooby can ensure that all participants in the supply chain, from farmers to packers and drivers, are rewarded fairly for their contribution, while customers continue to pay competitive prices. To further their mission of a better food system, all profits are being reinvested into local food production – this also includes profits made from this workshop.
In this workshop you will be learning about and analysing the health of your garden. The health of your garden is all about the SOIL. Discover easy techniques to build and maintain a healthy compost bin and wormfarm as we unravel the mysteries and magic of soil creation.
This very first session will be about ‘Small Scale Organic Gardening’ with Adrian Baiada, an Urban Farmer and Educator. Adrian combined his passion for real food with years of experience in community engagement and environmental sustainability, to better teach you how to plant and harvest your own crops.
With an honours degree in Landscape Management and Conservation and Certificates in Biological Agriculture, Permaculture, you know you’ll take home some valuable ideas.
