Is food your medicine? or food your poison? Unfortunately for most people, the food they consume is having negative effects on their health and you may not even be aware of this as you have forgotten what it is like to feel good, to feel vibrant, energetic and positive.
Growing your own organic food in nutrient rich soil is the only way to have control over your food supply and your wellbeing. I love growing food and I’ll teach you the methods I use to grow the healthiest food possible no matter what your garden situation is, I’ve lived on sand, clay and in an apartment and I’ve always grown my food. At Yandina community gardens I will talk about the different compost methods, worm farms, green manures, minerals and compost teas I use to bring life to the soil. Life begins in the soil.

From soils it’s the joy of planting your seeds, seedlings, trees or cuttings – the how, and the aftercare, foliar sprays and watering. How to harvest for prolonged crops. Why save seed. Did you know by planting certain plants together they are stronger and keep pests away? Certain plants have ‘super food’ powers, and I’ll share that with you.
Organic food is the basis of your health-there is no question about that, you must eat living food to feed your own cells/body. We will talk about anti health products – glysophate, round up and GMO and the damage it’s doing to all our environment and our body
Besides my love of gardening organically and the joy and health benefits it brings, I’ll also talk about 7 steps to wellness outside of gardening to bring vitality to you and your loved ones again, and its easy.
