Hi all, it would be nice to meet but oh very busy. Who else is interested? By the way we went up to visit Shelly Beach farm and it was very interesting, after a composting talk next to a giant pile of compost John showed us his bama grass which is ideal for shelter and stock feed, his massive pigs and free range cows, sheep and alpacas. We learned about how they make fish compost liquid, phew that reeked! and we walked down to his paddocks of macadamias and persimons to learn about mulching instead of having to water. We watched a beehive demonstration and learned about the biodynamic practices which keep his land and the animals healthy. Best of all we got to buy some lovely honey, bama grass and yukon, which is a type of superfood and very good for diabetics which is as easy to grow as potatoes. Well worth a visit. If you want to go look up their website for open days.
Are we still on for a December get totether. At the last get together Diane said she might host us.
Does anyone know what useful mineral are in a Tradescantia liquid compost? I am thinking it is mostly nitrogen; but it would be good to know for sure.
Thanks for the show around your garden and the strawberry plants nick, just great. Sorry I didn't bring any stirred prep, but we can make up our own by ordering from the biodynamic group and Diane SQ.
For those who know nothing about biodynamics I assure you it is just facsinating stuff and so crucial to the ongoing health of our food supplies. I urge you all to use the preps to enhance your own gardens via the compost heap and little by little, save the planet. There is a field day at shelley beach farm, a biodynamic farm on thursday the 17th nov from 10am to 12. All welcome. After listening to his talk at I E produce a couple of weeks ago, I am sure going up. Will take about an hour to drive from the north shore.
Sorry I had to celebrate Beltane Saturday eve at Waipu caves and dance like a mad man round the maypole. First day of summer is here!
Nice to know there is also a group so close by, so will look forward to meeting you all soon I hope
