A HALF DAY WORKSHOP & NETWORKING EVENT FOR VITICULTURALISTS & FARMERS
A healthy soil is vital to ensure both high yields and future high yields, as well as environmental protection – there are no negative consequences on the ecosystem from having a healthy soil! But what IS a healthy soil?
Soil health can be defined as a soil’s ability to function and sustain plants, animals and humans as part of the ecosystem. This definition speaks to the importance of managing soils so they are sustainable for future generations. To do this, we need to remember that soil contains living organisms that, when provided the basic necessities of life – food, shelter, and water, – perform functions required to produce food and fibre.
This workshop aims to give participants an introduction to management practices and tools that work to repair and regenerate our soil ecosystems and build resilience from the ground up.
Date: Tuesday August 12th 9.00am to 1.00pm
Cost: $50+GST. Morning tea & a light lunch are included.
Location: Margaret River Heart, 47 Wallcliffe Rd, Margaret River
