Paul Taylor is the managing director of Trust Nature Pty Ltd and has 30 years experience in America and Australia in natural farming, soil management and food production. His workshops take the mystery out of the complex sciences of soil and plant vitality and explain them in an easy to apply system of organic management.
A two day Perth workshop (Food For Free) targeting the backyard grower, turf management and small scale farmers, and a three day Margaret River Workshop (Bio Vital Farms) extending the concepts to broad acre farming, will run in March.
Paul Taylor says, “Food costs are rising by more than 20% per year and quality is going down, so people need to start growing healthy food from living soil again”
And as for who will find this useful, Paul says, ”Anyone with soil, I have learnt what works on farms also works for community gardens, landscapers, turf management and the back yard veggie patch, it is all a matter of scale.”
Using the multiple disciplines of Permaculture, biological farming, soil biology, compost and compost tea, Paul will excite and empower those interested in sustainable food production, safe, cheap soil management and regenerative agriculture.
Charles Otway, PermacultureWest co-convenor says, “We have brought Paul Taylor over because his techniques allows us to use less water, less fertilizer and fewer chemicals, returning to ‘natural farming’ and consequently, a more profitable, environmental food production system. This is especially important in our gutless sandy WA soils”.
The Perth workshop on the weekend of 17th and 18th of March is $300 and the three day in Margaret River running 23rd to 25th of March is $550.
