Gardening for wildlife, weeds as friends, and natural pest & diseases
- Biodynamic diversity; the flower, open pollination and bees in the garden;
- Seed saving and how to go the full circle;
- Positive management of pests and diseases;
- Hoeing is growing, weeds and what they tell us.
This workshop will be led by biodynamic grower and enthusiast Matthew Hayes. Matthew is currently a tutor and development manager for the new rooftop garden at Argent College in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, and also runs his own commercial market garden in Hungary. He completed his biodynamic apprenticeship at Tablehurst Farm in 1986, and has worked as a gardener and educator since.
Like many gardeners who get to know and use biodynamic methods, Matthew finds himself ever more convinced of the importance of the biodynamic approach, and looks forward to sharing his knowledge and experience at these workshops.
