The Beach Organics Kitchen Garden Workshop
With climate change upon us, a pandemic, increasing costs and the weakening of global supply chains, many of us have realised the importance of a viable, home based food economy.
We’ll be using our 10-acre NASAA certified organic permaculture property near Pt Elliot as our living classroom for this event.
Our small farm, was born from a treeless paddock purchased by Barry Beach in the early 1980’s.
You’ll walk under broad canopies of 100’s of native trees planted and see over 100 edible species growing, from bananas, to pomegranates, heirloom apples, quinces, figs, plums, berries, herbs and vegetables etc.
A low cost, owner-built earth cottage, swales, worm farms, mud brick wood oven, hot houses, integrated poultry forage system, bee hives and multiple vegetable / herb garden beds, fruit orchards provide a good level of self-sufficiency
This is now our template for our overseas “Village Based” Enterprise Projects, supporting organic farmers on three continents and growing our coffee, tamarind, vanilla, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger etc. We’ll explore some of their growing tips
We’ll show you how to:
- Build humus rich, healthy soils
- Integrate poultry into your gardens and keep the foxes away
- Manage weeds and potential pests
- Choose garden tools ie broad forks, oscillating wheel hoes, flame weeders etc
- Realise the importance of crop rotation and legumes
- Create your own aerated liquid compost
- Use simple permaculture principles to create your own edible landscape
- Choose the right crops for your location
The workshop will be designed for the novice, or those seeking additional ideas or inspiration
