Jim is the original Dirt Doctor and is a fantastic speaker with so much scientific knowledge and experience with his hands in the ground. Not to be missed.
Jim O’Gorman, founder of the sustainable gardening organisation Dirt Doctor, will be the guest speaker at Oooobyversity this Thursday.
A leading figure in New Zealand’s Organic Movement, Jim runs a one-man farm in Kakanui, without the aid of electricity or machinery, growing 1000 square meters of food by hand for the local community and markets. As well as leading Dirt Doctor Workshops throughout New Zealand, Jim is also working with the University of Otago on a project to remove Agent Orange from Cambodian soils using aerobic compost tea.
On September 2, Jim will introduce his unique biological approach to micro-farming and home garden soil ecology.
