Description

There is far more to soils than meets the eye. Healthy plants are dependent on healthy soils. Learn how to identify the various types of soils and improve them to create a healthy and productive garden. This class brings together the fundamentals of soil ecology, plant nutrition, soil pH management and soil care in a practical way, so gardeners can easily implement organic solutions to re-invigorate tired soils, and maintain their soils at an optimum condition.

Presented by Angelo Eliades

Angelo is presenter, trainer and writer in the areas of sustainable gardening and Permaculture. He is a passionate forest gardening advocate, and has a thriving demonstration Permaculture food forest garden in Melbourne’s inner northern suburbs which he regularly opens to the public.

With over a decade of experience in organic gardening, his specialty is designing and building food forests – sustainable intensive food production systems which utilize ecologically-based design principles for maximum productivity, minimum work and natural pest and weed control.

When he is not consulting, teaching, working in the retail nursery industry, or enjoying time in his own garden, he supports community gardening projects as a technical advisor, and runs the educational sustainable gardening website Deep Green Permaculture.
