Come along and join us for this workshop were you will immerse yourself in the world of creating and maintaining a holistic orchard. You will gain invaluable knowledge on the establishment, as well as the ongoing maintenance of a successful orchard ecosystem. We will demystify the necessary art everybody should know about the workings of their holistic orchard, as well as design, soil biology, and health management. Many want to grow fruit on a small scale, and this workshop will quickly have you savouring the prospects.
Growing Fruit trees is something anyone with space and desire can do - given knowledge and a commitment to observe the teachings of the trees. A holistic grower knows that producing fruit is not about manipulating nature but more importantly, fostering nature.
Holistic Orcharding then becomes a fascinating adventure sure to provide your family with all sorts of nutrient-dense abundance.
"Savour Soil’s ‘Holistic Orchards’ workshop was a day filled with information and practical experience ably taught by Michael Wardle. His teaching style included all participants and was pitched to differing learning styles. After this workshop people feel prepared to go home and pick their orchard location, build their own healthy soil, prepare the planting area and use companion planting to improve fertility and plant health. Michael even showed us some magic - making foliar sprays to strengthen plants and reduce susceptibility to pest s. Meeting other participants and hearing their stories is a great part of the learning experience too. "
