Learn to improve soil fertility and make your own bio-fertilizer! The Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast is extremely fortunate to have Paul Taylor coming to teach his Sustainable Soil Management course here early October. We still have spaces available in this course, so do not hesitate to call or email us to book in!
Paul Taylor was raised on an organic farm and has been working with sustainable soil management for more than 30 years. Paul demystifies the complex sciences of soil microbiology and plant nutrition to bring you a cutting edge system of sustainable soil management.
In this workshop, we redefine sustainable agriculture as ‘the ability to improve production while we reduce cost and improve soil fertility’. Learn this 3-part system as the path forward to improving your productive soils.
1. Specialist composting made easy: Trust Nature’s Bio-vital™ system
2. Making soil pro-biotic – soil microbiology made simple
3. Making cost effective Bio-Fertilisers: COAS principles from Eugenio Gras and much more.
Learn how to combine these 3 cost effective methodologies, to reduce costs and achieve sustainable soil management.
In this 5-day course we take the mystery out of soil microbiology, plant nutrition and ‘organics’ and learn how to combine methods to improve soil fertility, reduce input costs and improve production. These management principles apply to the backyard garden as well as the broad acre farm.
Sustainable Soil Management means that we depend on natural processes to improve production while we build soil fertility and reduce cost. We believe that the principles of sustainable soil management is the path forward for giving agriculture the tools needed to rebuild degraded soils.
