Talk on Alternatives to Fertilisers

Dear Friends,

The Sustainable North Trust is hosting a talk on Wed, 8 July on other options to feed the soil and keep our food production system going despite the rapid fluctuations in the price of fertilisers and diesel that are currently plaguing our agricultural economy.

The powerpoint presentation by Betsy Kettle and Alida Robey will show large scale worm farming, city to farm composting, seaweed fertilisers, NZ -made rock dusts, aerated compost teas, vermiliquid and other alternatives that are here now and working.

This presentation has been given 4 times in Rodney District, thanks to a grant by Rodney District Council’s Environmental Education Fund and has been very well received.

You will leave with information on where to go to source these options.  There are biscuits and tea afterwards.

Kind regards
Betsy Kettle

7-9 pm  July 8
