A workshop to be held in Seymour will give you plenty of ideas.MARK PADGETT May 28, 2014 3:02am
Soil biology? What’s that? Isn’t soil just dirt?
There are very few things that could be further from the truth.
In a teaspoon of soil there can be millions of living bacteria.
Soil isn’t a lifeless growing medium, but rather is teaming with billions of bacteria, fungi and other microbes that are the foundation of an elegant symbiotic ecosystem.
Biological activity in soil is fundamental for plant growth.
Here’s your chance to turbo-charge your garden with soil biology expert Ray Howell on Friday at 1
In this workshop he will discuss and show a number of practical ways to boost soil biology with the outcome being your plants being healthier, bigger and resistant to pest and disease attack.
Mr Howell has more than 30 years experience in horticulture and a sense of humour to boot.
Perhaps one day he’ll have his own TV show, ‘‘Ray’s Backyard’’.
Mark Padgett may also do some of the presentation, as Mr Howell’s sidekick.
This presentation is suitable for everyone, from the learner-gardener to the advanced.
Kids too should be able to get their hands dirty and hold a compost worm or two.
Participants are encouraged to bring a pair of gardening gloves, strong footwear, and lots of helpful questions.
The workshop will go for between 90 minutes and two hours.

This will be the last workshop/ presentation in the Healthy Living series, which started in November.
We are extremely thankful to our supporters, which include Mitchell Shire Council (community grants), Seymour Health, and the Salvation Army.
