Show soil some love with bugs and brews
A HANDS-ON workshop called “bugs and brews” will be held next month for farmers to learn about inoculants, bio-stimulants and fertilisers, and how to make them.
The workshop will be run by David Hardwick and Gerry Gillspie. David is an agro-ecologist who works across eastern Australia with farmers and graziers. His area of speciality includes soils, biofertilisers and composting.
David teaches agriculture and organic agriculture at TAFE NSW and is a partner in Soil Land Food, a consultancy specialising in sustainable and ecological agriculture.
Gerry is a leader in fermentation-based inoculants and bio-fertilisers.
He pioneered the “no-turn” inoculated compost in Australia, and teaches it around the world.
He has been involved in the recovery of wasted resources and their reuse for years.
The workshop will focus on on-farm technologies, including practical fermentation-based techniques, bio-fertilisers, bioles and liquid hydrolysates and no-turn, inoculated composting
