Free workshop: Get Your Soil Right!

Macleod Organic Community Garden, Somers Avenue, Macleod

Celebrating World Soil Day – Get Your Soil Right!

Join us at the Garden for a FREE workshop. Bookings essential so book now for the in-person workshop at the Garden:

Our soil provides us with our food, all the products we need for shelter, clothes and furniture – it’s full of life and  right under our feet. We need not only to look after our soil but also to improve it.

In this workshop:

  • Learn about Banyule’s soil, and what’s so important about it.
  • Receive practical information about soil and how to improve it.
  • See demonstrations of different soil types.
  • Learn about the importance of compost and mulch.
  • Buy products such as organic cow manure, potting mix, perlite and vermiculite at discount prices (and plastic free!).
  • Bring a handful of soil for pH testing and to determine what type of soil you have.

There is no life on this Earth without the soil and no soil without life. Happy World Soil Day!
