Gardening workshops in November – Who’s interested?

UPDATE: Photos from the workshops can be found here

We need to know if you are interested…

We have a friend coming down from Nieu Bethesda next month who has a long history of being involved with organic food production and permaculture as well as the certification of organic farms. He’s only passing through Port Elizabeth briefly so we thought to grab him while he’s here to give a workshop or two.
There are two possible workshops on offer. The one is an introduction to organic food gardening, the other in the use of Effective Microorganism (EM). Each workshop costs R400 a person and takes place over one day (9am – 5pm), with possible dates being the Wed 16 + Thurs 17 November 2011. Topics covered in each workshop  is as follows:
Intro To Organic Food Gardening workshop
Why organic? Organic growing and permaculture design
Soil management
water conservation
garden layout
container gardening
sowing and growing vegetables
companion planting
green manures
pest and disease control
brief intro to EM (effective mircro-organisms)
Effective Micro-Organisms workshop
History and theory around EMs
Practical application
brewing EM
multi EM
Fermented plant extract
other liquid and solid EM derivatives
So please let us know (email: if you are interested in attending either (or both) of the workshops. If there are enough people then we will go ahead and start planning for it…
