GUEST SPEAKER FOR AUGUST 2014 MEETING

David Gourlay from SoiLife will share his knowledge and practical ways of improving soil health across a number of industries including home gardening.
• Nutrition for plants, is essential as it becomes part of the human food chain. These days there is little nutrition in many of the crops produced for animal and human consumption.
• David will show you how easy it is to grow your own nutrition packed food. David will also explain ‘bundled’ beneficial microbes and why they will work for you 24/7.

GUEST SPEAKER FOR JULY 2014 MEETING

An old BOGI friend Morag Gamble from SEED International will be our July guest speaker. Morag will introduce us to a collection of incredible edibles – hardy plants that thrive in a subtropical climate, are low maintenance, and have low water requirements. Together they form the basis for a thriving garden that provides food, fibre, mulch, medicine and more.
