12 June 2019 • Understanding Soils with Taj the Perma Pixie

I was a little sceptical at first at how much value for money this course would be, but WOW, it was brilliant. Taj was so knowledgeable and went into amazing depth about the chemistry and biology behind soil - it was really stretching my brain. But at the end she gave us all the ultimate simple secret for the best soil which I am loving exploring at home. I would definitely recommend this course. It’s so interesting and Taj is super friendly and helpful, answering every gardening question I could possibly think of!

Taj's enthusiasm and open, interactive approach carried us all with her on this terrific workshop exploring the many dimensions of soils. She gave generously - information, references, responses, and ensured we were totally hooked on understanding more about soils and how to work with them holistically and productively

Loved this class. A lot of material was covered and Taj's passion for soil was transferred to an enthusiastic class of students. Can't wait to improve the soil in my own backyard!
