Merri Bee Farmacy’s Symphony of the Soil Feb. 9th & 10th 2019
The key to vibrant plants which resist drought, heat, frost, disease and pest attack lies quietly under mulch in an aerobic living soil. The smallest things on Earth may also be the most powerful. Reinstating the ancient partnership between soil microbes, plants and animals could be the only way to reverse pandemics of chronic disease and catastrophic climate change, yet soil’s beneficial microbes can be quickly destroyed by fertilizer, ploughs and pesticides. Conventional farm soils are inert & the food shaped- objects they grow contain a quarter of the nutrients our grandparents ate (plus untold poison residues). Conversely, soil “probiotics” create the rare aromatic flavours in real food responsible for health. Probiotics can be bred up in wormery’s and compost heaps. Organic farmer Bee made compost for 40 years but in 2014 learnt to make quality compost from Dr Elaine Ingham. We learnt about soil building form many scientists and leading farmers. Suddenly the farm is more profitable. People too are thriving as they eat nutrient dense foods covered in friendly bacteria, we will see them under the microscope. Quality compost can be brewed into a tea to inoculate large acreages with the whole soil food web.
Learn regeneration of the soil by many methods: Holistic planned cell grazing management incorporating the tool of rest; permaculture strategies such as swales, hugekultures and food forests. Receive your 78 page manual when you register, and pre -read if you like. It is a handy reference, and yours for keeps. Included is a 6 week one on one follow up programme and free refresher courses. Our gut lining is integral to our health and functions just like the soil. Learn how your own health and vitality and even the composition of your bones reflects the soil that grew the food that raised you! Essential information for parents and grandparents!
You can grow the food that heals and transforms lives. Good soil takes a lot of the hard work out of gardening. Come and stand in a garden where the soil is healthy, and the bio mass reaches for the sky, and we hardly ever irrigate.
