Over the 4 week course I will be presenting a series of lectures that will help you understand both the Big Issues – in other words – the philosophy behind organic gardening, and the Practicalities – in other words – how to do it. I will guide you through the steps you can take to adopt a chemical-free, sustainable and benevolent way of caring for the organic garden that will be good for your health and that of the environment – while keeping the organic garden looking great.
What is organic gardening?
Organic gardening is the science and art of gardening by incorporating the entire landscape design and environment to improve and maximize the garden soil’s health, structure, texture, as well as maximize the production and health of developing plants without using synthethic commercial fertilizers, pesticides, or fungicides.”
What is permaculture?
