Some feedback from past participants:

  • Hi Erin, Thank you for your e-mail. I did indeed attend the workshop and was utterly entranced by it. I have never known the concept of organic gardening and the way Steve took us through it and gave us so much information was inspirational. I have told many people already and certainly put it straight into practice in my own garden, I have never had any confidence with growing things and am a self described 'plant murderer' not any more though. Regards, Phillippa.

  • Your presentation was brilliant & natural, it was so good to see people engaged and really interested. Thank you for making this happen! Looking forward to the 9th of Nov. Warm regards, Jacqui, Sydney Sustainable Markets Inc.

  • I’ve watched many videos on no dig gardens but nothing compared to what I learnt today, it was great to be involved on a ‘hands on build” of a garden. Pest control component was very informative and interesting. Danielle
