23 September 2019 • Organic Vegetable Gardening (Two days)

I attended the Organic Vegetable Gardening workshop run by CERES just before the spring growing season hit its stride. The workshop was contained to a small number of enthusiastic attendees which gave us lots of time to ask questions and explore issues of particular interest or concern. It was a very engaging experience which gave me lots of valuable information about better ways to mulch and fertilise both soils and plants. The facilitator was a well informed and competent teacher so we absorbed a great deal over two days. Extensive notes where provided and will continue to be used as a ready reference. Everyone shared so it was a very rich and worthwhile experience all round.
