Event description

Description


Held at: Longbreath Farm, 37 Te Henga Rd, Waitākere

$25pp, $30/family


A quarterly series for the serious gardener and Auckland (peri-urban) farmer with Brendan Hoare.

* Action this month; past, present and future cycles of the land; reading landscape

* Guidance and ‘to do’ lists for home gardens, nursery, farm and tree crop systems

* Work schedules and planning tools

* Practical farm and seasonal gardening techniques.


In a changing climate getting a grasp of the ‘seasonal pulse’ is essential in gardening and farming success: timing is everything. Understanding these pulses requires training and an understanding of natural cycles while anticipating and adjusting to local variation takes time and requires awareness. This is particularly true if wishing to undertake land management without the over use of external inputs like fertilisers, pesticides and machinery.

The combined skills to achieve success includes reading the landscape and habitat, anticipating seasonal change through data, preparation of next seasonal activities, detailed work plans and a deep understanding of the local environment. All of these skills can be learnt if practiced on a regular basis.

If you have an established garden, are starting a garden, managing a farm or looking at buying land, and wishing to do so using organic and regenerative principles, this programme will help you develop skills and realise your dream.

You will develop skills to enable greater awareness of the land you are working with.
