Description

WORKSHOP DATE: Saturday, December 12th, 2021 (9:30 - 3:30) LOCATION: Springwood, NSW. Blue Mountains Our Urban Micro-farming workshop is an introduction to growing your own organic veggies and seedlings, composting, keeping poultry and growing mushrooms on an urban scale. Whether you are just getting started with growing your own food or want to upscale your patch, this workshop will get you fired up to grow lots more food at home. The workshop combines fun hands on sessions with detailed course notes full of practical skills and resources. We'll show you the basics of successful seedling propagation, bed prep, crop spacing and organic pest control methods to maximise your production of nutrient dense veggies in a small space. Learn the art of composting, and how to make organic liquid fertilisers and inoculates to boost your plant health and soil biology, without the need for store bought or chemical fertilisers. We share how we raise and keep poultry for eggs and even meat, in a way that is ethical, sustainable and integrated into an urban food production system. You'll discover how easy it is to grow your own supply of fresh oyster mushrooms and the steps involved in simple mushroom cultivation. You will even head home with your own grow kit to start growing your own delicious mushrooms straight away. We'll step you through the growing process, from inoculation to fruiting, so you can get growing protein rich mushrooms at home. ​The workshop takes place at our home and urban micro-farm in the lower Blue Mountains. We operate a small scale urban market garden, supplying veggie boxes to our local community, as well as for our own family. We love sharing the skills we have learned over the past decade to maximise food production and minimise waste. ​Head home with our detailed course notes and resources to get you started on your own successful urban scale micro-farming journey, plus some free seeds or seedlings, a mushroom kit and other goodies to get you started! ​COVID SAFE & CANCELLATION POLICY Covid-safe check-in and proof of vaccination will be required to attend this event.
