Description

Inviting Nature to Dinner: A workshop on how to grow food and support wildlife
by Helen Schwencke & Dick Copeman

Something drastic is happening to nature. Insect and bird numbers are decreasing dramatically world wide and frogs, mammals and plants are going extinct before our eyes. To grow our food we have cleared native habitat, brought in exotic plants and animals, spread chemical fertilisers and toxic pesticides across the land and changed the climate by burning fossil fuels. Nature’s creatures, big and small, are dying as a result of our actions.

Let’s choose a new track. Let’s get practical and local and make our gardens and small scale agriculture places that support wildlife, including insects, in mutual benefit, while growing our food. To do this we need to know which local native plants support which wildlife and how they do so.

This one-day workshop will explore the fascinating field of garden ecology and discuss options and strategies for growing food in ways that include local native plants and support wildlife.

For food growing to be truly sustainable, it has to allow room for nature, wild plants and wild creatures and all their interactions, to co-exist with our gardens and small farms. This workshop will help participants grow food in a way that achieves this.
