Gardening Workshop

A rainy September day did not deter the gardening enthusiasts attending our inaugural Gardening Workshop - "Get Ready for Spring". Welcoming our guests with a roaring fire in the Barn, we enjoyed morning tea ( a delicious home-made slice courtesy of our kitchen!) and spent the first part of the session listening to Agrissentials founder, John Morris talk about soil health and nutrition. Explaining the importance of maintaining healthy soil, we looked at what we need to do to achieve this (their Rokdust product is a great start!). With gumboots and umbrellas at the ready, we then braved the elements for an interactive session in the garden with Vital Harvest owner, Nicki Murray-Orr, looking at what we do here in the vege gardens at The Falls Retreat. This interesting and informative session was then topped off with a delicious shared lunch in the Bistro barn, with guests enjoying a selection of our gourmet wood fired pizzas and nutritious salads, using produce out of the kitchen garden. Thanks to Agrissentials, we had 5 bags of Rokdust to giveaway and everyone went home loaded with information on getting their garden started and a strawberry plant as a gift from us.
