• One Day Practical Biofertiliser & Fermenting Course (May)

    A one day course with Juanfran Lopez and Matt Dunwell  

    19th May    9.30 - 4.30

    A chance to learn how to regenerate farm and garden systems using home produced Biofertiliser, Native micro organisms, Aerobic and Anaerobic compost teas and  ‘Apichi’ for natural pest control. 

    Over the course of the day we will be collecting native microbes to make cheap but effective natural fertilisers and tonics for the plant and soil. 

    The day will be practically orientated although there will be a chance to discuss and learn some principles, objectives and strategies of Regenerative Agriculture.

    By the end of the day you will have the practical knowledge to make your own preparations at home, and a ‘starter kit’ of resources to take home with you including a fresh and mature batch of native microbes and a bottle of Apichi 'natural pesticide', biofertiliser for diluted use. 

    "Good mix between technical and practical; science and simple!"

    Juanfran Lopez has studied with the Columbian Jairo Restrepo, one of the leading teachers of microbialpreparations for healthy biological systems. Juanfran has also travelled through South America and Spain specializing in regenerative agriculture, learning and teaching as he travels. He runs the research into Regenerative Agriculture at Ragmans Farm, and has completed our first year of field trials.  Analysis and discussion of these trials including a chance to see soil dynamics under a microscope, will also be available on the course.

    Who should attend: Gardeners and small scale growers and farmers.

     "I have a good basis now on how to and what use can be applied. Excited to try"

    I feel much bolder about it all and also how it links into the wider system"

    "Great environment with practical demonstrations, as well as academic. Enjoyed it and learnt loads"

    "Can't wait to get started"
