Jim O’Gorman, founder of the sustainable gardening organisation Dirt Doctor and one of the 10 visionary kiwis featured in documentary film 'Earth Whisperers', will be the guest speaker at Oooobyversity
this Thursday, Sept 2, 6:30-8pm at the Grey Lynn Community Centre, 510 Richmond rd.
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.
At Oooobyversity, Jim will introduce his unique biological approach to micro-farming and home garden soil ecology, demonstrating the tried and true techniques he has used for remediation and production.
