10 am to 4 pm

Unlock the mysteries of soil to design efficient polycultures. Soil is the foundation of the garden. Learn how to identify soil types to better understand which planting schemes can be easily integrated on different sites.

To sustain long-term fertility in an eco-garden, the addition of organic matter as compost is essential. How would you design efficient composting systems that fit your site's needs, your lifestyle, and available time and resources? If you want answers, you will find them on this course day.

Hands-on activities:

  • collecting soil samples and performing low tech tests to identify soil texture and pH
  • auditing the needs of the site and available materials to define present and future composting strategies

The day course fee is £60. Book your place.
