the living soil

last saturday was a really educational day! mcduck woke up early too! and we went to lane cove nursery for a workshop in composting and worm farming! (eco-gardening)... peter from kimbriki ( was there to lead the way... and what an eye-opener! i've never thought of the soil being a balanced community (of microbes and micornutrients)... we learnt alot - about the importance of top soil, organic vs chemical cultivation... i am abit scared now to eat a bunch of broccoli (non-organic with pesticides permeating its high surface area)... this workshop certainly gave me some "vision" of what our garden could become... and enthusiatically, i have worked on our non-functioning compost in the garden the next day!
i really look forward to the other workshops!
